With Thanksgiving upon us, a reminder that tomorrow, Wednesday, 11/21 is a half day with an 11:10 am dismissal. This dismissal is always a bit earlier than others to accommodate the early dismissals at our elementary schools. There will be no after-school late buses on Wednesday. This is also a good time to remind families that bus routes and the number of buses deployed are determined by the locations of Mount Greylock students' residences.
The School Council has one vacant seat for a parent/guardian representative. The elected individual will serve for three years per the School Council By-laws. This year, in the absence of an Open House, the MGPTO asks parents and guardians to cast their votes digitally.
The Northern Berkshire Community coalition is conducting the Prevention Needs Assessment (PNA) Survey at Mount Greylock to students in grades 8 on Tuesday 11/27, 10 and 12 on Wednesday 11/28. Your child's class has been selected to participate in this survey. The PNA survey measures alcohol, tobacco, and drug use; the factors that place students at risk for problem behaviors; and the factors that protect students from problem behaviors.
In the event that we need to alter the school day due to weather, we will get the information out to you in a variety of ways. Our first posts will be to our Twitter account @MGMounties and onto our school website.
