Distance Learning

Mercy's Distance Learning program is used when there is a campus or county concern that requires faculty and students to not be on campus. The goal of Distance Learning is to continue to provide a rigorous and engaging academic learning experience through a digital platform. 

Fall 2020: Return to School

We are excited to begin the 2020-2021 school year! Mercy’s Leadership Team and Safety Task Force for Reopening School have developed a comprehensive plan which prioritizes the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, families, and community. We will continue to evaluate guidelines from the county and state, feedback from our community, and our own capabilities and resources, to prepare two options for our return to school.

Key Expectations

  • Adhere to the Hybrid Cohort ABCAB Schedule.
  • “Attend” class remotely through Schoology.
  • Check in on Zoom for attendance each period. 
  • Remain available to that teacher during that 80-minute period. 
  • Mercy-approved Free Dress is the DL dress code. You can still receive a uniform infraction if you are dressed inappropriately during a video conference. 
  • Internet access is required.
  • Do not gather in large groups. School closures are intended to slow the spread of the virus. 

Details about Mercy Distance Learning Expectations and protocols can be found in the Student & Parent Handbook.

Resources for Students and Families

Our goal is to support our students' academic, social, emotional, and spiritual needs. Mercy is more than an academic learning environment - it's a community, a culture, and a mindset. We will do everything we can to maintain the Mercy connection that our students know and love. Our faculty are continuously building and collecting resources for our students, families, and staff.

Community Opportunities

We encourage you to familiarize yourselves with opportunities that are available to both our parent and student community. These opportunities will be led by our faculty and staff and include sessions and activities such as College Counseling, Wellness Challenges, Lunchtime Meditations, and opportunities to speak with Administration. Specific Zoom links can be found in Schoology.
