  • Coronavirus Information - Update March 12, 2020

    We are continuing to monitor the spread of COVID-19 in our surrounding communities. So far, we have not been notified of any confirmed cases in Mount Vernon City School District. We have several students and staff that have made a personal decision to self-quarantine out of an abundance of care. That does not mean that these people are positive for the virus. They may have had indirect contact with an infected person or simply showing signs of a typical cold or flu and exercising recommended precaution.

  • 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.
