This week's additions and changes:
Added a "Family Technology Troubleshooting" link : A google folder with a variety of resources for families to use to help navigate the technology used at MGRS.
Added the Temporary COVID-Time Bell Schedule: This is the class bell schedule we will use for our remote/hybrid learning time.
Does your family have any National Geographic's that you could donate to Ms. DeSomma?
They are an excellent tool when studying color. Ms. DeSomma can pick them up from you, or you can bring them to the building. Please contact Ms. DeSomma @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Please remember to fill out this survey. We are requiring that all families formally state their intentions for the fall so that we may prepare for the beginning of school on September 16. Please complete one survey for each of the students living in your household no later than Friday, September 4, at noon.
Dear Parent or Guardian,
According to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, (105 CMR 220.500) beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, influenza vaccine will be required for school attendance for all students Kindergarten through Grade 12 each school year. Students must receive the vaccine for the current season by December 31, 2020. This does not apply to students who have a medical or religious exemption.
The School Committee recently voted to approve a modified fall athletic program for Mount Greylock students. These program options will help provide opportunities for students to be physically active in a safe, socially distanced and supervised environment. I have included the general concept of each available program for families to review.

I am reaching out tonight to make you aware of another program that the BIC is helping to bring to Berkshire County High School Students this fall. This is an interdisciplinary course that is open to all Berkshire County High School Students, and one that is intended to appeal to all (not just those interested in a career in technology or advanced manufacturing). The course, which will be entirely remote, is designed by Josh Shapiro, a Monument Mountain grad who now teaches at NYU. The course is called Technology & The Future of Work and is designed to engage students in problems related to rapidly advancing technology & socio-political change. Josh developed this course for NYU and it was recently selected to be featured in a "NYU Star Courses & Big Ideas" initiative.
I am so excited to introduce myself as the band and choral director here at Mount Greylock Regional School. My name is Jacqueline Vinette, and many of you may know me from my nine years as music teacher at Lanesborough Elementary School. | I'd like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Patrick O'Connell. My wife, kids and I live in Bennington, VT. I have happily spent the last 11 years working at Bethlehem Central School District and performing with various orchestras and ensembles in the Capital Region and Tri-State area. [Video]
Back to school is fast approaching! Have you read your required summer reading book(s)? If you are having trouble locating a copy of one of the MGRS required books, contact school librarian Liza Barrett, who still has copies of most of the required books to arrange a pick up/drop off spot!
