A Message from Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth R. Hamilton The Governor has just announced that schools will be closed for the rest of this academic year. While we are all very anxious to resume some normalcy, at least now we have some finality to what the next steps will be. That said, we have initiated a committee that is tasked with making recommendations for how we will commemorate our graduates. We have also established a committee to explore the parameters of our summer school program. Please stay tuned for more information in this regard. We have placed an order for additional laptops through the courtesy of the Mount Vernon Educational Foundation (MVEF). As soon as we receive those devices we will schedule our next distribution. If you are interested in making a donation to the MVEF which is a non-profit organization, please the foundation's website at our www.mtvernoncsd.org/foundaition for more information. We know this is a very challenging time for everyone. I understand that many parents are trying to balance work, family, and now homeschooling. We will get through this together.
The Mount Vernon Educational Foundation (MVEF) is calling for donations to help raise money to purchase laptops for the students in the Mount Vernon City School District who are in need of devices as they continue to learn at home.
