    Welcome to E-LEARNING for the 2020-21 school year. Please take the time to read this email as it gives information regarding Attendance Policies for the next few weeks. Your daily online presence in all classes is imperative during the time we are all virtual. Being virtual gives you the opportunity to attend your classes when you may have otherwise not been able to attend in-person. You should not be using a cold/other minor illnesses, traveling, etc. as an excuse to not attend school.

    Please be advised due to the current state mandate and remote only learning schedule, we find it necessary to postpone the Focus: HOPE Food Drive. Campus Ministry is working to coordinate with Focus: HOPE for a later date. Please do not drop off donations to Mercy at this time. You may hold onto any items purchased or donate to another food pantry. Stay tuned for further information. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding!

    During Mercy E-LEARNING Days, the Mercy Counseling Department will be available to support the emotional & academic needs of our students via Virtual Counseling sessions. To best address the concerns and expectations of our school community, click here for guide which will clearly outline the E-LEARNING Days Virtual Counseling practices and procedures being implemented by the Mercy Counseling Department.

    This evening Governor Whitmer announced a new order from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services that tightens resident restrictions in an effort to control the current COVID-19 surge. One of the restrictions is for all high schools throughout the state to return to a remote learning model for the next 3 weeks. There will temporarily be no in-person instruction.
