WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional Transition Committee has rejected the superintendent's recommendation to shorten the April vacation.   Superintendent Kimberley Grady proposed a school calendar for the 2018-19 school year that replaced the spring vacation week with two long weekends. Grady was worried that extra snow days could put the district in a position where it wouldn't have the required 185 days of school.   With the full April break and five snow days, the school year would end on June 25. Classes must be over by June 30 and in this case, with weekends, that would be the June 28.    "This was all we really had. There are not

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Sixth-graders Tyler Hynes-Drumm and Riley Babcock understand the impact the struggling Berkshire Mall has on the town.   "This issue is important because," Riley told the Board of Selectmen on Monday and Tyler finished the sentence, "our town income is lower because the mall had just a big impact on our community."   "When it is gone, we have to pay higher taxes and tourist may stop visiting," Riley said.   The pair had sat down with Assessor Kelly Tolisano, who explained to them that the mall is valued at $19.5 million, resulting in a tax bill of $417,000 — a number that is significantly down from the mall's

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — April vacation will be a thing of the past — at least for one year — if the Mount Greylock Regional School Transition Committee approves a calendar proposal presented at Thursday's meeting.   Acting on direction from the committee to try to end the school year earlier than this year's snow day-induced June 25 release, Superintendent Kimberley Grady and her building principals developed a proposal that replaces the traditional week off in April with two long weekends.   By recovering the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after Patriots Day, the district would have classes ending on Thursday, June 13 — or, with the state-mandated

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. —  Before they branched out into the "real world," Mount Greylock's graduating seniors were reminded of just how treelike they really are.   "When a tree is just beginning to grow, it's just a seedling," Daniel K. "Hoby" MacWhinnie told his classmates. "Seedlings need a good environment to grow, just like ourselves.   "As the years move along, we start to grow and develop good roots."   Grounded in their education from Mount Greylock Regional School, the 80 members of the Class of 2018 received their diplomas on Saturday morning at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts' Amsler Campus
