We have received calls about individual student schedules. The full course schedule has been built, and we are waiting for the adjustments to the system that allows us to share the schedules with students on PowerSchool. Afternoon tours of the school for new students and families have been scheduled for Tuesday, 8/27, Wednesday 8/28 and Thursday 8/29 from 3:30 to 6:00.
An early welcome back for those returning to Mount Greylock this fall, and a welcome for those joining Mount Greylock for the first time! I was hoping to get this message out last week, however the rush to get all the construction projects at school done before the start of school has delayed our PowerSchool update. I apologize if you will no longer be attending Mount Greylock in the fall. As soon as we can update the system, you will be removed from these emails. I will be sending a separate message to incoming 7th grade students through the elementary school systems.
Students are placed on the honor roll when their quarterly letter grades average a B or better, and when the student receives no grade lower than a B- in all graded classes. If students earn any grade of a C+ or lower, their names will not be placed on the honor roll. The student must be carrying a minimum of four graded courses to be eligible. Students who withdraw from a course are not eligible for the honor roll for one semester.
