    Update

    Dear Mercer Families,

    It's hard to believe we are entering the final 3 weeks of the school year! As we close out our year, I want to share some important announcements with you.

    Last Week of School:
    • In order to meet the governor's requirement for in person learning, the last week of school (June 14-18) will have 4 days of in person learning for those students participating. We will follow our Monday/Tuesday schedule on Thursday/Friday that week. Wednesday will still be a fully asynchronous day.
    • As is the SPS tradition, the last day of school (June 18) will have a one hour early dismissal. Rather, than change our schedule, we will not meet in A-Teams that day and students will be dismissed at 2:50 p.m.

    8th Grade Promotion Celebration:
    • Our 8th Grade promotion celebration will be a Teams Live event on Tuesday, June 15 from 3:00 - 3:45 p.m. The celebration will also be recorded and shared out so families unable to join the live event may watch at their convenience.
    • A link for the event will be shared the morning of June 15.
    • On Wednesday, June 16, 8th grade students are invited to come to Mercer to pick up certificates and a small gift.
    • More details will be shared with 8th grade families next week.

    Device Return:
    • All students not participating in an SPS/Mercer summer school program are required to return all devices (laptops, iPads, hotspots, etc.) so they can be updated and prepared for the next school year.
    • Students will not incur fines or fees for lost or damaged devices.
    • Families may return devices for all of their students (regardless of school) to any SPS school building.
    • At Mercer, students who have a personal or family device at home may begin returning laptops as soon as Wednesday, June 16. We will collect laptops from in person students on Friday, June 18.
    • Students who are leaving school prior to the end of the school year should turn their laptop into the library on their last day of school.
    • All students can return devices during the following times:
    o Friday, June 18 - 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
    o Monday, June 21 - Time to be determined.
    o Tuesday, June 22 - 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
    o Wednesday, June 23 - 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    We are looking forward to a strong end to our school year!

    Go Mustangs!
