WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee last week talked about the post-pandemic "new normal," both from a public health and academic standpoint.   One item on the agenda for the panel's Thursday meeting was the revocation of an interim policy requiring that all students — even homeschoolers — participate in the district's novel coronavirus pool testing program in order to participate in in-person extracurriculars.   The committee ultimately approved the revocation on a vote of 7-0, but first it talked a little about health and safety in the "new normal."   "The culture of the high school …

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee on Thursday voted to accept the low bid for a contract to make gender equity and accessibility improvements to the middle-high school playing fields after the bidder agreed to trim the project by $93,500.   Last week, the school district opened two bids for work to bring the school's ball fields into compliance with the Americans with Disability Act and Title IX.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee on Wednesday voted to ask bidders on an athletic field contract to "sharpen their pencils" and come back to the district with ideas for cost savings.   This week, the district opened bids from two respondents to a request for proposals to bring the middle-high school's playing fields into compliance with Title IX and the Americans with Disabilities Act.   In a development reminiscent of the School Committee's stalled efforts to complete a more ambitious athletic field project, both bids came in above estimate.   In April, the committee discussed an estimated price tag of $1,087,026

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — In reflections both sweeping and intimate, the Mount Greylock Regional School's 2021 class speakers Saturday talked about the often frightening ways the world has changed them and how the school prepared them to change the world.    "High school was a playground, a sandbox, to have a simulated go at real life," Julius Munemo told the crowd assembled outside the school. "A real life defined by what you say and what you do; by what you chose to be, when the world wants you to be something else. The fact that we can remember moments from our time here and cringe is a good thing. It's proof that we've developed
