11/5 Principal Message

Mt. Vernon Parents/Guardians,


2-Hr Delay

Parents, just a reminder. ALL WCPSS will be on a 2-Hr delay on Tuesday, November 6. Please plan accordingly.


Turkey in the Hole

Parents/Guardians, it is that time of year again. Each year, Mt. Vernon hosts families and community partners for a Thanksgiving celebration here at Mt. Vernon. In the upcoming weeks, you will receive additional information on the event and the student rotation. For right now, please mark Tuesday, November 20th on your calendar. The event will take place between 10:30 am and 12:00 pm. Also, this day is an Early Release day. All students will be released at 12:20 pm. As always, transportation will be provided.


Family and Community Engagement Event

We are in the process of rescheduling our Family and Community Engagement event canceled by Hurricane Michael. We are trying to be mindful of all of the events happening this time of year for our families. Through WCPSS’ Family Academy Office,  different programs are offered throughout the school year. Please go to for more information.


Magnet Window Open

The Wake County Early College and Magnet School window is now open. Please contact Ms. West if you have any questions regarding this process.


MAV Sheets

Please continue monitoring your child’s MAV Sheet nightly. This behavior management system serves to provide immediate positive feedback to our students while addressing areas in need of improvement. At times, the MAV sheets will also contain important pieces of information for you and your family.
