COVID-19 Healthy at Mercy


Mercy Academy COVID-19 Reporting (1/26/2022 @ 10:00 a.m.):
Cases Currently Active = 6

If you have any questions or need to report potential or confirmed exposure to COVID-19, please contact Gina Hester at (502) 671-2010.


 

The Kentucky Department of Public Health (KDPH) released modifications to quarantine guidelines on January 10, 2022 that have been supported by the local health department and the Archdiocese of Louisville. Schools with a universal mask policy in place (like Mercy) are now permitted to utilize the following guidance on isolation and quarantines:

Mercy considers an individual to be fully vaccinated 14+ days after the final injection of an mRNA vaccine or 14+ days past the single injection of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Please note that many individuals are now becoming booster-eligible. Mercy highly encourages following the recommended timeline in order to have the maximum protection available. Please refer to this graphic to see when your student would be considered booster-eligible. Once your student’s vaccine card has been updated, please email a picture or PDF of the card to Ms. Kathleen Nauert.

Because Mercy is following a universal mask policy, contact tracing is no longer required in the school building. Families are still required to report confirmed positive COVID-19 results in their households to Mrs. Gina Hester at (502) 671-2010.

*When calculating quarantines: Day 0 is your first day of symptoms or the day you receive a positive viral test. Day 1 is the first full day after your symptoms developed or your test specimen was collected.

 


 

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.
