I have told the students and staff on many occasions, upon returning from a long alumni or recruiting trip overseas, that I never miss them as much as when school is in session and I am not on campus.

It’s hard to believe that the Wilbraham & Monson Academy Rugby program has crossed the 10-year threshold. This spring marks the 11th season of existence for the boys’ team and 10th year as a varsity sport. A girls’ program was established in 2018, and this spring was to mark its first at the varsity level.
As the world adjusted to the spread of COVID-19, students left for Spring Vacation on March 6 and soon after learned that they would not return to classes on campus for the remainder of the academic year. WMA quickly began the transition from a brick-and-mortar program to a virtual one — Online Distance Learning.
