MT. VERNON — It’s been a busy summer of maintenance and construction projects for Mt. Vernon District 80 Schools. The biggest project consisted of closing off the library at J.L. Buford School with walls around the area to create a quieter learning environment.
The district’s superintendent Aletta Lawrence says the Buford library project was just one of a list of items that needed to be completed this summer.
First day of classes for Mt. Vernon City Schools is August 14th.
