Mount Vernon High School Weekly Parent/Community Update
A Message From Mr. Will
We miss our students and having them in the building each day. We will work harder than ever through our current situation to provide instruction and support for each and every student.
District Closure and MVHS
With the school closure, MVHS will be closed with the exception of students needing to drop off or pick up assignments on Mondays from 11AM-12PM and 5PM-6PM. Monday will be the only day open for students to drop off/pick up assignments. Lunch/Breakfast will be served at the custodial entrance of the building each day at the scheduled time for a quick Grab and Go. Thank you for adhering to these schedules.
Teaching Tools Tutorials
We realize this is an unusual and difficult situation we are facing, but it is important that we abide by the recommendation of the medical professionals and governor to help mitigate any potential spread of this virus here in our community and with our students and families.
It is our intention, that once these orders are lifted, and there is a return to school, we do everything in our power to try to salvage a spring sports season. It might be modified, but try to have a season. We obviously will be monitoring the decisions by the state and by the Ohio High School Athletic Association in guiding these decisions.
Food Distribution During School Closure
Food distribution will continue over spring break.
Buses will be parked at nine (9) locations throughout the district from 11:00-12:00
to distribute a ‘Grab-n-Go’ lunch to school-age students. At the same time, we will
distribute a ‘Grab-n-Go’ breakfast for the following morning.
The nine locations include:
1. Columbia Elementary
2. Dan Emmett Elementary
3. East Elementary
4. Pleasant Street Elementary
5. Wiggin Street Elementary
6. Middle/High School
7. The Learning Center (West)
8. Central Office (Elmwood)
9. Pat Catan Parking Lot
Please understand that ‘Grab-n-Go’ meals will meet the USDA food guidelines
but they will never be as good as Grandma’s homemade. We will be providing
additional community food bank alternatives on our website. Should we have
students who live one (1) mile outside of the radius of one of these locations and
you need the support of a ‘Grab-n-Go’ meal. Please contact the Office of
Transportation at (740) 393-5995 for additional assistance
