Dear Parents/Guardians:

Due to downed power lines and trees blocking bus routes, and as a result of power outages and downed phone lines blocking communication, we have canceled school for tomorrow, Tuesday, August 30th.

If you have neighbors without power or phone service, please share this information them.

We are disappointed to have to postpone the first day of school, and hope to have better news about Wednesday.


Jonathan Landman, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools

The decision has been made to postpone the Hopkinton Golf Fundraiser from this Monday, Aug. 15TH to the new date WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 24TH- Same times @ Shining Rock C.C. Registration 11:00-11:30 and golf at noon.

This decision was based on the forcast of rain all day on Monday. The Shining Rock C.C. needed to have an answer by this morning because they had to plan on food for 160 people. So let's hope our date on Aug. 24th is a beautiful day. It's the day before we start our HHS golf try-outs and season. Good way to kick off the new season.
