The little school that could

By NG Times -May 13, 2020

A little private school in Merrickville is chugging along and offering their full course load online so no student falls behind due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Merrick Preparatory School (MPS) closed its physical doors on March 17, after the province of Ontario declared a State of Emergency due to the global pandemic. This meant making sure all their students were able to either travel home to their respective countries safely, or find local family or homestays where they could self-isolate. MPS Principal, Kevin Farrell, said that making sure their students had a safe, supportive place to go was their top priority.

As soon as the state of emergency was declared, Kevin and the rest of the staff at MPS mobilized to create an online platform to allow their students to continue their studies virtually. Within a week, they were able to use the online technology that they were already using for assignments and tests and add to it to create a virtual synchronous learning environment.
