Annual Town Meeting - NEW DETAILS
Annual Town Meeting will be held on Saturday September 12, 2020 at 9:30 AM at the Hopkinton High School in the “old bus loop” area. There will be one large tent, able to accommodate 200 people with socially distanced seating. Families, or those residing in the same household, will not be exempt from the socially distanced seating arrangements - and so we ask for your cooperation in not moving or relocating chairs. There will be additional seating outside the tent, for overflow, should attendance be over 200. Members of the Hopkinton Emergency Management Team, and Public Safety, will be on hand to usher and direct residents for parking and registration.

Update from School Superintendent Dr. Carol Cavanaugh - NEW UPDATE
Dear Hopkinton Families, With school beginning for students on September 16, 2020, I would respectfully encourage families to begin a "soft quarantine," meaning you stay in your bubble, you wear your masks when leaving the house, and you leave your house for the more essential activities. As we've learned in the course of the pandemic, there are many safe ways to socialize, find entertainment, and exercise, for example. If every family makes a concerted effort, we will have our best chance of keeping the children and adults in our schools safe.

I look forward to seeing our students return to school in the next couple of weeks.
My very best to all, Carol Cavanaugh
