MHS to offer SAT SCHOOL DAY on Wednesday, October 14th, 2020

Dear Members of the Senior Class,

Given all the uncertainty about college testing and with Covid-19 safety protocols in mind, the October 3rd SAT and SAT Subject Tests scheduled at Medfield High School have been cancelled.

MHS will be offering a SAT School Day Test for all Medfield High School seniors on Wednesday, October 14th, 2020.   More information will be coming this week for how seniors can sign up for the “SAT School Day”.

Here are some facts about SAT School Day:

  1.  You will pay to take the exam through AP TEST SERVICES, not through College Board.

  1. If you are looking for a refund or to switch payment from the October 3rd SAT to another SAT you need to contact College Board directly at 866-630-9305.

  1. Only the SAT with essay or SAT no essay are offered on SAT School Day.  College Board prohibits subject tests on SAT School Day.

  1. If you have an SSD number and receive testing accommodations, you will be able to test on SAT School Day.

  1. If you were NOT registered for the October SAT in Medfield you can still take the test.  Registration information will be available later this week.

  1. The deadline to register for SAT School Day here in Medfield will be October 1st, 2020.

  1. The district will do a deep clean on the Tuesday night prior to the test and again on Wednesday after testing.

  1. Students will be split up on test day by cohort.  More information will be provided as we get closer to October 14th.

We are excited to offer the SAT to all Medfield seniors!  If you have any questions about the SAT Test Day protocols, please contact your guidance counselor at 508-359-2482.

A MESSAGE FROM STUDENT SERVICES 

If you have any questions about special education evaluations or services, please contact Karey Curley (kcurley@email.medfield.net), the Educational Team Leader for MHS. If you have already been in contact with your student's service providers, you can also email them directly. 



 

Fall is here! These are unprecedented times, but the good news is that MHS remains committed to producing a yearbook, including a section full of senior portraits. We just need to work out some details with Jostens such as senior-portrait size requirements, submission protocols, and the deadline (probably in late October as in years past). Thanks in advance for your patience while we make these decisions. Stay tuned for more information to come soon!
