Mid-Term Exams / Grades 5-8

Dear Parents of 5th - 8th grade students,

Due to midterm exams, students in grades 5 - 8 will be dismissed at 11:00am on both Wednesday, December 16th and Thursday, December 17th.  To help expedite the dismissal process, please make note of the following procedures:
ALL 5th - 8th grade students should be picked up through the church carpool line.  Please review the procedure for church carpool on our school website and make sure your carpool number is showing clearly in your front windshield.  If your child is not familiar with his/her carpool number, please contact our office before Wednesday to obtain that information.
If your student is finishing an exam when you get to the front of the carpool line, we will ask you to pull into a parking spot and will send out your child when he or she finishes the test.
If your child will be leaving with someone other than a parent or guardian, please provide written notification to the office in advance.
Carpool will close at 11:30am.  Please make every effort to arrive before that time.
For students who are already registered to utilize the Mercy Extended Day Program, we will offer special extended day services for 5th-8th graders on Wednesday, December 16th and Thursday, December 17th starting at 11:00am and running until the normal ending times of 4:30pm and 5:30pm.  In order to attend extended day for one or both dates, you must sign-up by Tuesday, December 15th by 3:30pm so that we can adequately provide staff.  SIGN UP HERE Students will be required to bring lunch, and study spaces will be provided on Wednesday afternoon.  
*Please note, this is offered in addition to our regular extended day program that will continue to operate normal hours for our PK-4th grade students.
Thank you in advance for your patience as we work to ensure a smooth and efficient early dismissal for our 5th - 8th grade students.
