District Closed Monday, May 2, for Eid al-Fitr

The Mount Vernon City School District will be closed Monday, May 2 for Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday.

Originally, the calendar showed that the district would be closed Tuesday, May 3. But the Board of Education voted this week to correct the date to Monday. Both the schools and the district office will be closed.

Tuesday will be a regular full day of school for students and staff.

Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
