The Mustang Monthly Welcome back - August 2021 Edition

Updated August 25, 2021


Principal's Post

I hope that everyone is having an amazing summer break! Please take a few minutes to review the information below. As per the most recent decision from DASD, starting August 16th, anyone who enters the building is required to wear a mask. Thank you in advance for you support as we work to keep all of our Mustangs and Mustang Families safe!


Springton Manor Specific
PickUp Patrol

Please note: Students that will be picked-up will be given a placard for your vehicle on the first day.

If you are in need of a replacement or second placard, please email your request to sm_attendance@dasd.org and one will be sent with your child.

Homeroom Assignments

On Monday, August 16th, all classroom placement information will be available on Infinite Campus. Our school team gives careful consideration to every placement. We consider all aspects of our students and do our best to place them in an environment where they will be successful. Because of the intricacy of this task, we are not able to honor any requests to change classroom assignments.

Back to School Nights/Open House
  • Monday, August 23 - Kindergarten at 6 PM (Suggested 6-6:30 AM Session and 6:30-7 PM Session)
  • Tuesday, August 24 - First and Second Grades (6 PM - 7PM)
  • Wednesday, August 25 - Third, Fourth and Fifth Grades (6 PM - 7PM)

This year, our teachers will be recording and sharing out specific classroom information prior to the times listed below. Those informational videos will replace the typical presentations that were shared with parents during previous Back to School Nights. When you join us this year, feel free to explore the building with your child. Take time to check out the classroom and meet their teacher for the upcoming year. Our teachers will be focusing on conversations with students and answering any questions they have. Parents, if you have specific questions about the upcoming year or would like to share specific information about your child, please email the teacher directly to set up a time to talk with them. We look forward to seeing you soon!
