BOSTON – Massachusetts schools will have the option to distribute weekly at-home tests to students and staff this month under a new testing program announced by the Baker administration on Tuesday morning.   The at-home testing program is designed to replace the commonwealth's "test and stay" program, which was created to allow in-school testing of asymptomatic close contacts of people who have tested positive for COVID-19.   Education Commissioner Jeffrey Riley called at-home testing a "game changer" for Massachusetts schools.   Baker said schools will continue to have the option to continue with a test-and-stay program already in place or adopt

SALEM, Mass. — Gov. Charlie Baker gave no indication that the schools will go remote this year despite the rising cases of COVID-19.   Speaking at Saltonstall School early Monday morning, the governor noted that his administration has "aggressively partnered" with schools across the state to ensure they could safely open in the new year.    "We said for quite awhile from the beginning of the school year, and in fact al the way back to last spring, that it was critically important for kids to be back in school for a number of reasons," he said during the livestream event, pointing to the potential affects of remote learning on social development,

"Normal" may still be a long way off.   But some of the usual suspects were back in their normal positions, at the top of the heap, during 2021's sports seasons.   The state's high school athletics governing body went 14 months without awarding a state championship. And once it did, a Berkshire County dynasty claimed another one.   The trend continued in the fall when one perennial power defended its state title and another earned a return trip to the biggest sports venue in New England.   Here is a look back at some of the athletes and teams making headlines in 2021.   Taconic baseball Coach Kevin Stannard's program earned its fourth straight

  ADAMS, Mass. — There are many ways to cook a turkey, and the kindergarten classes at Hoosac Valley Elementary School annually send iBerkshires their own ideas on how much turkeys weigh, who cooks them and how long it takes, along with their own somewhat exotic recipes.    Their Thanksgiving recipes are always amusing and sometimes enlightening, particularly the choices of stuffing, but we must strongly caution against following any of their directions as a matter of public health. Please note, these recipes are only for your reading pleasure. Happy Thanksgiving!   Teacher Robin Poirot started this fun project some years ago so we start off with what her
