Dear Mount Greylock Families,
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.
You will soon begin receiving important information and documents for the coming school year. This message is to ensure you are also aware of the interscholastic athletic opportunities offered through Mount Greylock, especially as the fall athletic season is quickly approaching. Later this month you will be receiving information about other afterschool programs at Mount Greylock including three student performances, two language clubs and other various after school organizations and leadership opportunities. The Mount Greylock co-curricular program is an integral part of the total educational process. Through participation in co-curricular opportunities, students can have experiences and training in events not ordinarily obtainable in the general curriculum. We hope that all students become involved in an after school program and urge each student to choose programs they will have the time and energy to be an active member of.
This fall, eight different athletic opportunities will be offered through Mount Greylock.
- Cross Country (Boys & Girls), Available to students in grades 7 - 12
- Football, Available to students in grades 8 – 12, hosted at Drury High School
- Golf, Available to students in grades 8 - 12*
- Boys Soccer, Available to students in grades 8 - 12*
- Girls Soccer, Available to students in grades 8 - 12*
- Girls Volleyball, Available to students in grades 7 - 12*
- Unified Basketball, Available to students in any grade.
*Team selections will be determined after a tryout period in the sports of golf, soccer and volleyball. Middle School students may be asked to try again the following year if high school participation is high.
The fall athletic season begins prior to the start of classes and pre-registration as well as attendance at a mandatory preseason meeting is required.
Please ensure that any student interested in participating has completed the online registration and that a copy of a recent physical exam is on file with the school nurse.
Football (Meeting: Aug 20th @ 6pm at Drury HS, Practice: Aug 16th @ 5pm, Equipment at 4pm)
Cross Country, Golf, Soccer, and Volleyball (Meeting: Aug 20th @ 6pm at Mount Greylock, Practice: Aug 22nd)
Unified Basketball (Meeting August 20th @ 6pm at Mount Greylock, Practice: October 3rd)
Students new to Mount Greylock must be completely enrolled with the Guidance Office prior to any athletic participation.
Registration must be completed by 8pm the evening prior to the start of a practice or tryout to ensure student will be eligible to participate.
Students that register after 8pm the evening prior will not be cleared in time to participate and students that do not register will not be able to participate.
Missing a practice may affect team selection for those sports with a tryout period.
Please view the information and attachments below for more details, contact information for coaches, and help with the registration process.
