WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock School Building Committee last week unanimously recommended that the district go forward with a rebuild of the middle-high school parking lot at a cost not to exceed $975,000.   For months, the School Building Committee and the Mount Greylock Regional School Committee have been considering whether to include the parking lot in the ongoing addition/renovation project at Mount Greylock.   At issue is whether the district expects to have contingency funds available in the $64.7 million building project to pay for the parking lot, an expense that would be borne entirely by the district with no reimbursement from the Massachusetts School

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Mount Greylock Regional School junior Karen Magnusdottir McComish remembers how she felt the day the 26 people were gunned down in a Connecticut elementary school.   She never expected to have the same feelings more than five years later when 17 people were killed at a Florida high school.   "Just about everyone in high school right now was in elementary school during Sandy Hook," McComish said this week.
