Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women is committed to fulfilling our mission to nurture the faith and intellect of our young women and to do so in a safe and welcoming environment. The present COVID-19 health emergency has forced us to alter our standard practices in order to continue to offer an exceptional education. This plan outlines the procedures and protocols we are implementing to keep our community safe. They have been developed based on federal, state, and local guidance and medical and epidemiological advice from members of our COVID-19 Response Team and its antecedent, the COVID-19 Reentry Advisory Task Force. The procedures and protocols on the following pages are subject to alteration as circumstances and official guidance change.
