WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — For the second time this fall, Williamstown Elementary School is closed for the day due to an issue with the heating system.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School PTO and Northern Berkshire Community Coalition are teaming up for a community discussion about preventing youth substance abuse.

The public forum, "What's the Harm?" will be held Wednesday, Dec. 2, at 6 p.m. at Mount Greylock Regional School.
