Policy for Extended Absence Due to Ordered Quarantine

Report any NEW quarantine orders to the school office before 9:00 a.m. on your student's first quarantine school day. Messages may be left on the school answering machine prior to 7:30 a.m. 

If your student is quarantined due to a COVID exposure, she is expected to follow these guidelines with respect to coursework.

  • Check Schoology daily for agenda items
  • Complete and submit the assigned work for the day (Contact teachers via email if additional help is needed)
  • If 6 days of school have been missed, arrangements need to be made with her teachers individually to ensure she remains on track with the pace of learning. Teachers may provide your student with instructional videos or have her Zoom into the live class.

Upon return to school, your student will meet with her academic counselors to establish a timeline for submitting any missing assignments.

 


 

Dear Mercy families,

The Archdiocese of Louisville released new documentation mandating masks during indoor events. Mercy Academy, along with all the other high schools in the Archdiocese of Louisville, will follow this mandate, requiring all individuals (regardless of vaccination status) to wear a mask while inside. This will help mitigate cases and limit exposures. At this time, masks are not required when outside. As a reminder, all vaccinated students should send a copy of their vaccination card to Kathleen Nauert as soon as possible. The CDC does not require vaccinated individuals to quarantine in the event of an exposure, unless they begin developing symptoms. 

In an effort to remain at 100% capacity for the school year, we need your help in completing the following protocols, effective Tuesday, August 10.

  • Please take a moment each morning to review these symptoms and ensure your student does not have any. If she does, please do not send her to school and contact our school office at (502) 671-2010. 
  • A mask must be worn as soon as your student enters the building. When outside, she may remove her mask.
  • Please keep honest and transparent communication with Mercy. We are heavily relying on you to let us know if your student is experiencing symptoms or has come into contact with someone who has COVID-19 symptoms. We will not share her name with anyone, but we do need to know who to alert for contact tracing purposes.
  • We will continue with proper sanitization during and after the school day, including between lunches.
  • The Archdiocese of Louisville provided the following prevention strategies for grade schools to use. Mercy will follow these recommendations to the best of our abilities, as well.

Mercy's school office or a representative from the local health department will contact you should your student need to quarantine from an exposure. An unvaccinated, exposed student will be required to follow the local health department's quarantine guidelines. If, during this time, your student begins to develop symptoms or tests positive for COVID, please contact our school office at (502) 671-2010

Students who are absent due to quarantine will be required to check Schoology to access course information and assignments. Synchronous classes will not be available to students who are absent.

Thank you for doing your part to help ensure all our students remain healthy at Mercy this year!

Sincerely,
