WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Plans to build an artificial turf field at Mount Greylock Regional School may be sidetracked by a global pandemic that has dealt a serious blow to the funding source eyed for the project.   Last week at a meeting of the School Committee's Finance Subcommittee, Superintendent Kimberley Grady reported that officials from Williams College had contacted the district to check in about what commitments the district already has made for spending from the college's endowment.   "I think the School Committee needs to have a frank conversation about what the changes to the economic landscape mean to future capital projects or ideas about how to spend
