A note from the Vernon School Board

Thanks to all who have worked to support our schools during these difficult times.  From volunteers distributing food, teachers working in new ways to stay in touch with students and keep the learning process going, and all the newly anointed at-home teaching staff (a.k.a. parents), we appreciate your help and your patience.  

The School Board is looking to restart our meetings to keep up with our required work, while still allowing for public access – in the new normal of social-distancing.  Open meetings laws are in the process of being adjusted and we will work to adjust with them, keeping you informed on what we do and when we do it. 

If you need anything from Vernon Elementary please feel free to get in touch with our Principal Mary Ross at or call 365-1225.
