Dear Mercy parents:
We sincerely hope that your Christmas was filled with blessings and that your New Year is off to a great start! Please let me take this opportunity to thank you for partnering with us in the education of your children.
This letter provides instructions regarding the process to Re-Enroll / Re-Apply for the 2019-20 school year. When you access the payment portal, students currently enrolled at Our Lady of Mercy in grades 3YO – 7th will select to pay the “Enrollment" fee. Admissions guidelines criteria will be applied to our currently enrolled students seeking placement in either the Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten programs, but families with students rising to PK and Kindergarten do not need to complete a new application for 2019-20.
The Re-Enrollment process for the 2019-20 school year is open between now and January 18, 2019, and will take place online through the following link: RE-ENROLL HERE
Please follow the link above and enter the Gulf Coast Payment Portal. Enter your student’s name and then select “Enrollment” under Payment Type. The application fee will be $275 for each student enrolled.
If you would like to pay by check or cash, please follow this link, RE-ENROLLMENT FORM and complete the paper form and submit it with your payment to the main office by January 18, 2019. Please feel free to contact Business Manager Kristen Spedale at firstname.lastname@example.org or (225) 924-1054 with any questions regarding these processes.
We encourage all parents to complete this process no later than January 18th, as spaces are very limited and will be open to new families applying to the school beginning February 1. Please note that after January 18th, the fee will be $375 per child.
If you do have a NEW applicant seeking admissions for 2019-20, the application process begins HERE.
The Our Lady of Mercy School Board approved next year’s budget in November. HERE you will find the sheet that outlines the cost for enrolling your child at Our Lady of Mercy next school year.
Our school board and its finance council have worked to simplify the financial components for our families. Please feel free to contact me or any member of our school board or finance council should you have questions regarding the budget for the upcoming year. A list of school board members and their contact information can be found on our school website at the following link: School Board Roster.
God bless you and your families, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with you in the education of your children.
