    SENIORS, THIS IS THE CALL THAT WENT OUT TO YOUR PARENTS LAST NIGHT PLEASE ADVISE... 

    Greetings Knights families,

    Please be advised of two very important updates from Mount Vernon High School........

    Lastly, with the change in available options for in-person gatherings, we are excited to announce that this year's graduation will now be held IN-PERSON.

     The plan includes:

    * All graduates being honored for commencement on our MVHS Football Field inside our very own stadium grounds.

    * Strict adherence to 2 guests per graduate (no extra tickets will be available)

    * Seating will be provided at safe distances

    * All guests must complete a self-attestation acknowledging that they have been vaccinated or have tested negative within 72-hours of graduation

    * Graduation date of Friday, June 25, 2021

    * Ceremony beginning promptly at 10:00AM

    * Non-ceremonial guests may gather at the end of commencement outside of the main entrance to Mount Vernon High School to watch the grads walk by

    * Limited number of speakers to ensure each student is awarded an opportunity to be individually celebrated

    We continue to operate in a changing atmosphere and appreciate your continued patience. We are thrilled to make this happen.

     Sincerely, Dr. Ron Gonzalez

  • Cap and Gown Information

    Order your Cap and Gown Here.

    Cap and Gown

    You will pick up cap and gowns AT SCHOOL. They will be mailed to the high school and we will have a distribution day. In early June when they come in. 

    All Genders will be wearing the same color. We kept this the same as last year for continuity. 

    The sizing is based on your HEIGHT AND WEIGHT. Please refer to the size chart they have provided and please think about the shoes you are going to wear. Graduation will be an outdoor ceremony on the fields. Please consider footwear choices, which affect your height.  This is not the time to wear the highest of heels that you have never worn before and then fall and hurt yourself. Be comfortable walking across the stage on this most important day!

    If you have questions or concerns. Please email me or message your senior advisors on Schoology.
