We started in-person learning at Mount Greylock Regional School District on October 5 and over the past 19 school days we have all worked diligently to hone the safety protocols that were based on the recommendations of the state and our own Wellness Working Group. The implementation is going well, but I would like to take this opportunity to reiterate some key safety expectations and heighten the community's awareness of our local and state requirements.

Chromebook screens are fragile! Sleeves and cases are beneficial, but will not necessarily protect the screen from heavy books in a backpack. Now that students are once again transporting materials to and from school, we recommend that they carry their Chromebook cases independently - and not put them inside their backpacks-  to best avoid any damage.
