December 1, 2020

To the Families and Communities of our South Buffalo Schools:

As we continue to adjust to the ever changing guidelines that are presented to us, make no mistake that the students, staff, parents and community have been resilient in the fluctuation of events.   Once again, there has been an adjustment to the guidelines given by the state and local governments.   We have all worked tirelessly in effort to make a smooth and seamless transition to Distance Learning based on the designated cluster zones and previous restrictions that were implemented.    We will continue to persevere through these unprecedented times.   Since then, we have been working in conjunction with one another as well as multiple medical facilities in order to obtain partnerships to test our student and staff populations.   The goal is to reopen as soon as possible with all necessary protocols in place which requires testing on a weekly basis. We are diligently planning and preparing and will welcome your children back into our schools as soon as we can ensure their safety while meeting testing requirements.  We value the health and safety of our community and will keep you updated once final decisions are made.   Together we ask for your support, patience and understanding as we develop well thought out plans that are feasible to execute.   Thank you and we will continue to update you as soon as possible.

"Mount Mercy has positively changed my life forever. Through the inviting community, I was able to grow as a woman, as a daughter, as a friend, and as a member of society. Throughout my time here I have gained an education in both academic areas and life in general through the school's ongoing efforts to educate students on gender inequality, racial injustice, and environmental crisis'. Furthermore, Mercy has given me the space to gain confidence that 4 years ago I never would have guessed I would have. Mount Mercy has helped me take that initial step toward becoming the strong woman of color I am today. At Mercy you are more than just a student, you are whoever you wish to be."

"My future, success, and the ability to be an empowered woman in society come from Mount Mercy. My school is a strong foundation for my role in life. From attending Mount Mercy, I can say with confidence, that I will graduate with the mindset that I can accomplish anything. Mercy is my home and my sanctuary to be whoever I want. Mount Mercy has been bringing forth generations of strong intellectual women into the world, and I am more than honored to be one of them. Mercy teaches girls more than academics, but also about the world around us. As a mercy community, we give back to the world because it is our home. From my four years at Mercy, I have been educated on pushing for equality and peace and the understanding that there is no limit to what I can do. I have the confidence to go out in the world and make a difference because being a Mercy girl has given me that opportunity. "

"Mercy is more than just a school. Mercy is my second home and a shoulder to lean on. Mount Mercy has given me the confidence and resources to pursue my passions and make the world a more inclusive place, propelling me to take strides into male-dominated fields. Mercy blessed me with an environment to grow intellectually and in the community, giving me the foundation to make a tangible impact while making lifelong friendships."
