Mustang Care

In the Mustang Care program, we provide a home-like atmosphere where the focus is placed on the needs of the child grades K-6.  Children have the opportunity to choose from a variety of activities, including sports, arts and crafts, puzzles, games and movies.  Quiet areas are also available for homework and reading.  Students are discouraged from bringing any electronic devices such as iPads, cell phones, games, etc. 
Mustang Care personnel will not be responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged items including electronics; supervisors have the right to ask students to put them away if they are causing a disturbance. ** Due to life-threatening nut allergies, we ask you NOT to send snacks that contain nuts or tree nuts of any sort.

Hours:   Before school, 6:30 a.m. until 8:00 a.m.
              After school from school dismissal until 6:00 p.m.

Location:  Morning & afternoon Mustang Care will be held at the Mora Elementary School in the new (North) gym.  

Registration: If you would like your child(ren) to participate in the Mustang Care program, stop at Mora Elementary, or you may call 320-679-6200.

Fees: $2.75/hr per child.  Effective July 1, 2019, fees will be calculated per every 30 minutes (1/2 hour - $1.38; full hour - $2.75). A late fee of $2.75 per every 15 minutes will be charged for any family picking up their child(ren) after 6 p.m.  If you attend Mustang Care on a regular basis, you must pay each Friday.  If you only attend occasionally, you must pay at the end of that day.

We have been working on making it easier for our parents to contact our Mustang Care staff during, before and after school hours.

Our school emails are a great way to contact us with questions and concerns. You may contact our Mustang Care supervisor Becky Jones at

We also have a new phone exclusively for Mustang Care. Parents may call during Mustang Care hours only at the number of 320-515-0967. We would appreciate you only use this number for urgent matters. This will make it easier for you to contact us while your child is at Mustang Care, and for us to be able to contact our parents if need be. Thank you.
