A Message from the Principal: News and Notes
Posted 04/16/2021 07:48AM

Good Afternoon MG Students and Families,

We hope you are well.  What seems like the final remnants of winter are fast approaching.  Stay tuned to your regular station (email, phone, MG twitter account, Greylock Snow Day blog, or website), any potential impacts on schedule will be communicated as soon as possible.

Speaking about storms, we applaud the continued display of perseverance witnessed throughout the past year.  Both individually and collectively we’ve seen first hand our students, families, and staff triumph over obstacles and come together to support each other.  We’re confident we’ll weather this storm together, turning some struggles into strengths.  

As we enter our final academic quarter I expect we finish the year strong... happier, healthier, and more resilient.  Please enjoy April break.  Spend time with family and friends.  Take time for yourself.  Whatever you decide, be safe and know we’re here for you.

Please take time to review the notes below as some require quick turnaround times.

Mr. Schutz and Mr. Shebar
