  • 2019 MCAS Schedule

    Posted by John Vosburgh on 1/14/2019

    The link below will take you to the 2019 Adams-Cheshire Regional School District MCAS schedule.  It is very important that students are in attendance on these test dates.  If you anticipate any conflicts, please contact your school in order for your child to be placed in a make up session.  Should students be absent for illness on these days, they will automatically be scheduled to test on the make up dates.

  • Alternative Learning Days

    Posted by John Vosburgh on 12/26/2018

    The Adams-Cheshire Regional School District will be piloting the use of Alternative Learning Days in the 2018-19 school year in lieu of making up snow days in June.  The intent is to capitalize on the optimal learning time in the winter/spring, prior to high stakes testing, when students are more engaged in meaningful school work.  The link below will provide you with more information as well as frequently asked questions from other districts in Massachusetts who are currently implenting this concept.  I would like to thank the school districts at Gateway, Westfield, and Ralph Mahar Regional for their advice and support with our pilot.

    This pilot will be implenteted pending a Memorandum of Agreement with the Adams-Cheshire Teachers Association.  No Alternative Learning Day will be called without notification to students and families well in advance of calling the day.

  • Hoosac Valley High School Football Banquet

    Posted by John Vosburgh on 12/17/2018

    This past Sunday I was honored to be a guest for the Western Mass Champion Hoosac Valley Football Team's end of the year banquet.  As I watched the festivities take place, I was completely taken back by the focus of the coaches and athletic director on the development of student-athletes into fine young men of great character.  Of course there was the mention of the successful season that brought home yet another Western Massachusetts Championship, but awards were presented for core values and characteristics that are developed both on and off the field. Coach Poirot and his coaching staff should be very proud of their accomplishments this year in every phase of their program!

  • Hoosac Definitely Has Talent!

    Posted by John Vosburgh on 12/17/2018

    This past Saturday night I had the pleasure of judging the annual Hoosac's Got Talent show.  Being a judge in this event, however, was quite difficult as each act demonstrated some amazing skills and talents.  I give a ton of credit to all the students who went up on stage to perform.  At that age, this is something I NEVER could have done.  While the winners certainly deserved their awards, each student should be extremely proud of their performance!!
