Dear Mercy Community,


There was recent information received regarding a student who tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend.   Since the release of this information, we were informed that another positive case was confirmed.   These cases are unrelated and have no known contact.   Although we remain within the regulations to remain open, it has been determined that  Mount Mercy Academy will transition to Distance Learning for a 14 day period from the last day of in-person learning.   Students will be required to log into homeroom at 7:50 am followed by their regular class schedule.   In-person learning will resume on Monday, February 1, 2021 which coincides with the start of the third quarter marking period.  


Please note that all of the proper protocols have been adhered to and we remain within the guidelines of the Erie County Health Department, however we are taking precautionary steps to avoid contact and spread of any additional cases that may arise.   Mount Mercy Academy will continue to sanitize regularly and remain diligent in maintaining the necessary protocols.   Please be mindful in practicing the recommended preventative measures such as mask wearing and hand washing.

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs. Michele Melligan  ‘92

Head of School


"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."
