Hopkinton Senior Center: - REMINDER
The Senior Center has a limited take-out lunch program (Tuesday - Friday) for Hopkinton seniors, particularly those who are homebound and/or have relied on the Center for their daily main meal in the past. If you know of a senior who might benefit from this program please call the Senior Center at 508-497-9730. We have refreshed our menu - https://www.hopkintonma.gov/departments/senior_center/announcements.php Cost is $2 per meal.

Hopkinton Public Schools:
The Hopkinton Public Schools request that community members do not access our courts and fields during the regular school day. At the High School/Middle School complex, that time period is from 7:00AM to 2:00PM.

While the Public Schools are typically willing to share our spaces, during the pandemic we will be needing to access those outdoor areas with much more frequency, not only for physical education classes, but also for mask breaks and outdoor instruction in other content areas. In an effort to keep our kids safe, we must limit their contact with others.
