8月11日星期四-新生欢迎: Link Crew 8:30AM-12PM
8月12日，星期五，全体学生迎新活动: 请注意更新的时间. Orientation is an important day for 学生 to gather on campus, 拍他们的学校照片, 获取他们的时间表, learn about new opportunities and to be with their Mercy classmates. All 学生 should arrive by the start time listed below and should arrive in full uniform for their school photo.
*Please note Senior Orientation includes an hour and a half of College Boot Camp led by our College Counselor Aurora Kearney Nevett.
This is a very important introduction to the college application process that all 学生 should attend.
我们知道COVID会一直存在, and it is our goal to provide a safe space for your daughters to continue healing from the past three years and to thrive in their present and future lives.
Knowing that we need to transition to accepting a world with COVID, we will no longer be having all community members take part in a weekly testing program. This year it is our hope and expectation that we will all be honest, 负责任的, and join together to care for all of our community members. 如果学生感到不舒服，就应该呆在家里. Though t在这里 will be no required weekly testing program on campus, all 学生 are expected to take an antigen test if they experience any symptoms. 学生s can receive an antigen test at any time in the Main Office as long as schools continue to receive free testing kits.
Please note that the County of San Mateo shared on August 2, 2022 that all school community members must take an antigen test prior to returning to school. To make this county requirement easier on our families we have scheduled on campus testing next week on the following days:
If you have tested on Mercy’s campus before, just show up! 如果你是新来的，请点击 在这里 注册“病毒极客. If you have no insurance please come to the Main Office for a free test kit as t在这里 is no longer federal funding for uninsured 学生.
If you test at Mercy, we will receive a copy of your results. If you have a test kit at home and prefer to take it on your own, please take your test within 24 hours of your return to Mercy and 在这里上传你的结果. Please write your name on the test kit prior to taking a picture of it.
Mercy不要求学生接种COVID疫苗. It is important to note that we will always follow county and state guidelines when it comes to vaccinations so should t在这里 be a change during the year we would notify families.
It is always our goal to respect individual family decisions. We never want our 学生 to be divided over vaccinations. We also need to acknowledge that t在这里 are certain situations that are out of our control due to some organizations we work with having vaccination policies. 例如, if we hold field trips or retreats in locations that require vaccinations we cannot make exceptions for 学生 since we do not own the space. In these rare situations unvaccinated 学生 will not be able to participate in events.
One area of school life that will be affected by this distinction is the use of the Mercy Center Chapel. The Sisters of Mercy currently require vaccinations for chapel use. It has been three years since we have been able to use this beautiful sacred space of the Sisters of Mercy, and it is an important piece of the Mercy experience—one that we must bring back. Though unvaccinated 学生 will not be able to join liturgies or prayer services in person, they will be able to join via a projected screen in a classroom.
Please make sure you have submitted your daughter’s necessary paperwork and medical records ahead of Orientation Day. Should you have any questions please contact the Main Office.
All summer work should be completed and uploaded to Schoology (or turned in to teachers) by August 7th.
