Welcome to the Mount Vernon Community School District! We are excited for your student to join our family. Whether your student is beginning kindergarten or transferring from another school, our dedicated staff is committed to ensuring all students succeed

Returning Students

Registration for the upcoming school year will be open for existing students in late July.  To help ensure that schools and students are well prepared for the first day of school, parents are encouraged to register their child or children online prior to the registration deadline. The online registration process will allow parents to submit information directly to the District.  Please be sure to provide up-to-date phone and email information. This contact information will be stored in PowerSchool and our notification system, SchoolMessenger. The Mount Vernon Community School District will be using SchoolMessenger for emergency notifications, announcements, and other important messages

Mount Vernon High School

If your student is entering grades 9-12, we request you schedule an appointment with either our High School Counselor, Brett Karkosh, or our High School Registrar, Stephanie Timm to set up your student’s class schedule. We recommend students bring their previous schedule and grades to that appointment.

Any questions or concerns regarding registration, academic courses, activities, athletics, clubs, etc. can be answered by calling the appropriate school or emailing a building secretary.

We encourage all parents to get involved, volunteer when they can, and communicate with the teachers. We hope you enjoy being a part of your student’s experience and the Mount Vernon School District.
