FROM THE HEALTH OFFICE…
COVID Pooled Testing has begun at MHS. Please fill out this Consent Form to have your child/student included. We encourage you to sign up to be a part of this data collection tool to keep our students and staff safe and to help us move towards further in person learning. We have over 70% of students signed up so far. Here are a couple bullet points about pooled testing:
It is a painless, self-administered nasal swab (not the deep naso-pharyngeal swab).
It takes less than a minute to complete and no class time will be missed.
If a pool (classroom) of students/staff are negative, we presume all are negative.
If there is a positive person in the pool, your child will not miss school. We will use our rapid tests to individually test all students/staff and isolate the positive case.
For additional information, please use this LINK. If you have any questions, please email us or call (508) 242-8568.
Thank you (from your MHS School Nurses)!

The ANGP committee is in the process of planning a wonderful event for the Class of 2021. We are working on getting approvals from the town, police, fire and administration. As soon as we have all the appropriate approvals, we will announce our plans for ANGP this year. We know everyone is anxiously awaiting the event details, but we need to make sure everything is done according to protocol and safety standards. We appreciate your patience with this.
In the meantime, there are three things you can do:
1. Make a donation to the ANGP. There are no tickets to purchase. Instead, we rely on your tax-deductible donation in support of your student’s attendance to one of Medfield’s time-honored traditions. Check out our website for updates and to make a donation. https://www.medfieldangp.com/
2. Send in photos of your senior. Please see the flyer above for detailed information on what is needed from you. We want to make sure EVERY senior is represented in the End of Year tribute video to the Class of 2021. The above flyer has specific details regarding photo submissions.
3. Volunteer. Please sign up HERE if you are interested in volunteering. Decorating, set-up, clean -up, fundraising are just some of the many tasks that need to be done to make this a successful and fun night to remember. There’s something for everyone.

What is Challenge Success? A national non-profit organization (affiliated with Stanford University graduate school of education) that partners with schools, families, and communities to embrace a broad definition of “success” and implement research-based strategies to promote student well-being and engagement with learning.
What does Medfield Challenge Success do? We meet monthly to brainstorm ideas to reduce unhealthy pressures and demands, and to build resilience among MPS students. We have mostly been active at the middle and high schools, but we are hoping to expand to younger grades.
