District plans to provide meals, distance learning for students

By the order of Gov. Greg Abbott, school districts across the State will be closed to students through Friday, April 3, due to the threat of COVID-19, and the staff at Mount Vernon ISD is learning to be flexible.

The tentative date for students to return will be Monday, April 6. This time frame could be extended, if it needs to be, and MVISD administrators will communicate that information as soon as possible. For the rest of this story, see the March 26 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
