Families living outside of the Hicksville School District  should monitor the availability of bus transportation in the event that Our Lady of Mercy/Hicksville schools are open and your home school district is closed or has a delayed opening.     


OFFICIAL NOTICE

Rockville Centre—Ursuline Sister Joanne Callahan, Diocesan  Superintendent of Schools, is recognized as an official with authority to respond to Revenue Procedure

(75-50) which was published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin dated December 8, 1975.

In conformity with the IRS regulation, notice is hereby given that the schools of the Diocese of Rockville Centre admit students of any race to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools and that the schools do not discriminate on the basis of race in administration of their education policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Sister Joanne further explained that the very notion of racial discrimination is diametrically opposed to the concept of Christian communities that our schools strive to be.  She also pointed out that our Catholic schools have always welcomed and have been enriched by students from various ethnic groups.

Does Your Company Have a Matching Funds Program?
 
If so, your donations to OLM can easily be doubled!  Some companies will even "match" your volunteer time with dollars!  In other words, if you volunteer at OLM, your employer will convert your volunteer hours into dollars and provide a check to OLM to match your efforts.
