LENOX, Mass. — Superintendent Jason McCandless doesn't think the Pittsfield High School Class of 2018 is very bashful.   "You are not a shy group, Class of 2018.

The class of 2018 was not shy about emailing the superintendent," McCandless said.   He recalled receiving this email from Jonathan Zunitch, "Dear Dr. McCandless, lots of snow, lots of students going to bed late tonight, roads are looking pretty rough out there, 🤔." And jokingly said he'd be calling Zunitch next year at 4 in the morning asking for advice on whether or not to call a snow
