School’s decision to start early has paid off

One month into the new school year and it appears that the decision by Mount Vernon ISD to begin classes early has paid off.

So far, five of the 1,550 students enrolled have tested positive for COVID-19 and one staff member has also. Those students were quarantined from classes for the duration of their illness. See the September 10 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for the rest of this story.
