Mount Greylock Likely to Stay with Winter/Spring Vacation Weeks

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires Staff
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — It likely will be at least another year before the Mount Greylock Regional School District considers a move away from the traditional February and April vacation schedule.
And it looks like a switch to a single week off in March may not be in the cards at all.
Superintendent Kimberley Grady last week presented a tentative 2020-21 academic calendar to the School Committee for its consideration. As drafted, the calendar would stick to the familiar practice of a week off starting with the Presidents Day holiday in February and another commencing with Patriots Day in April.
The committee has in the past discussed whether it made sense to switch to long weekends for the February and April holidays and a full week off in March for a couple of reasons: one, it would align the schedule more closely with the schedule at Williams College, which employs many of the parents of children in the district and two, it could result in a net pickup of school days that could prevent going deeper into the month of June with snow days.
