Socks, Hats, Gloves and Masks drive on Friday

A message from MPH4MPH:

Sock the Pandemic!

Hi MPH, because of your kind efforts we raised over 1,000 cans that provided over 980 meals to people in need last all school testing day. Let’s keep up this kindness by spreading warmth to our neighbors in need. When you come for your testing on Friday, please bring a hat, face mask, gloves, or socks in each hand to donate to the Good Samaritan Center in Syracuse. These items are among the most sought for right now with countless people needing protection from the extreme cold and the coronavirus. If you forget to bring it at the time of your testing, no worries! You can bring in these items anywhere from 8:00 to noon. All sizes are needed, but men's XL especially so. New or gently used items are welcome. So bring a sock, hat, glove, or mask in each hand when you come for COVID-19 testing on Friday, and let's Sock this Pandemic!!

Food Drive on Friday

Announcement from MPH4MPH:

Hi MPH, here is our opportunity to show our kindness for the community at large. Did you know, since the Pandemic began, there has been an 80% increase in the number of people living in food insecurity and dependent on the food bank in Central New York? This is an overwhelming number. Let's use our agency and privilege to help. When you go for testing on Friday, please bring at least two (one in each hand) nonperishable canned food items. They will be collected and donated to the CNY food bank. Together, we can help CAN this pandemic.

School-Wide Covid-19 Testing on Friday

Dear MPH students, 

MPH expects that employees and students (i.e. those who would be teaching and learning on campus as opposed to via simulcast access) will choose to participate in the school-wide testing on Friday, December 4 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., organized by the Onondaga County Health Department. Families have received a link to register their children for this test. Testing will take place on campus; we will provide specific details about the testing process by Thursday. 

There will be no K-12 distance-learning classes on Friday. 

Onondaga County health officials will administer the BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag Card Rapid Antigen Test. This test involves a painless, lower nasal cavity swab, taking just a few seconds. Please watch the brief video of Nurse Christine Civello and second-grader Jack demonstrating the quick-and-easy test-taking procedure:


 You will be informed ONLY in the event of a positive test result. No news is good news. Assume that your test result is negative unless you hear otherwise. 

When should I arrive on Friday, December 4? If you are able to adhere to this proposed schedule, please do so. If you cannot adhere to this schedule, come whenever you can between 8:00 and 1:00 p.m. All individuals who are registered for a COVID-19 test on Friday will be accommodated. 

8:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m.: Pre-K students 

8:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.: MPH Employees 

9:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.: Lower School 

11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.: Middle School 

12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.: Upper School 

We’re all in this together: let’s get tested so that we can come back on campus safely. See you on Friday!
