While November 17 marked the first snow day of the season for many schools throughout Kentuckiana, for Mercy Academy students and staff it proved to be a day in rather than a day off.As her younger brother sat and watched television Monday morning, Kayla Fitzgerald, 16, kept her eyes glued to her iPad. “It’s basically like Facebook for school,” said Kayla, a sophomore at Mercy Academy in Louisville. “This is a rubric that our teacher sent us of a project that we were going to do in class today.” Unlike many other school districts that opted to cancel classes after the season’s first snow, Mercy Academy leaders decided to promote productivity by holding classes online Monday.
