  • Coronavirus Information - Update March 11, 2020

    As of this moment, Mount Vernon has no confirmed cases. Various district staff have reported indirect contact and consequently have elected to self-quarantine. Indirect contact means that they have been in some proximity to an infected person or associated with someone who may have had contact with a confirmed case. In those instances, guidance from the Department of Health does not recommend that the District take any action. However, as we have worked to reduce possible exposure, we are looking at each situation on a case by case basis and making decisions accordingly. Our primary goal is to ensure that all students and staff remain safe.

  • District Requests Payment from City of Collected Taxes

    From Dr. Kenneth R. Hamilton, Superintendent of Schools: Today is Tuesday, March 3, 2020, and I regret to announce that the Mount Vernon City School District believes that it has not received ALL collected school and library taxes from the City of Mount Vernon. The City of Mount Vernon collects taxes on behalf of the school district and the library and remits payments on or before February 28 of each year. This is the second year in a row that the City has failed to meet its obligations to remit ALL tax dollars collected to the school district.
