  • Information for 8/25-9/4 

    Dear Hopkins Students and Families,
    As I write this, we’re a little more than a week away from the start of our 2014-2015 school year.  I can speak for all of Hopkins’ staff: we can’t wait!
    I want to communicate a few key points as we get a little closer to Opening Day:
    First, our building is extremely busy these last few days of summer break.  In addition to the safety training exercise the Hopkinton Police will be conducting this Monday afternoon (the building is closed after 12:00), we have a number of teacher meetings, staff trainings, and building maintenance preparations occurring throughout the building.  Many teachers are also working on getting their rooms and plans ready for students.  Therefore, I respectfully request that you only visit Hopkins during our Open House on Wednesday, 8/27 from 9:30-11:00, or, if you have an appointment with a staff member.
    Second, our first day of school is Thursday, 9/4.  At Hopkins, our doors open at 8:40, and the school day officially begins at 8:55.  Please bring a snack and a water bottle if you’d like, and of course lunches will be served if you do not bring one from home.  Our school day ends at 3:10.  During the first few days of school, I would allow for extra time before and after school in terms of transportation plans as everyone works out the kinks and routines.
    Third, when students arrive on the first day of school, Fourth Grade students should report to the cafeteria.  Fifth Grade students should report to the Gym.  Once at the designated location, students should find their assigned teacher(s) and wait for their classmates to gather.  If students need help finding the cafeteria or Gym, or finding their teacher(s), there will be many staff members on hand to help out.
    Finally, here are a few important contact details should you have any questions or concerns:

    ·      Hopkins Office phone: (508) 497-9824
    ·      Hopkins Absentee Call-in: (508) 435-0312
    ·      Hopkins Nurse Office phone: (508) 497-0312
    ·      Hopkins Office email, dismissal changes: hoffice@hopkinton.k12.ma.us
    ·      Tim Kearnan, Principal: tkearnan@hopkinton.k12.ma.us
    ·      Vanessa Bilello, Asst. Principal: vbilello@hopkinton.k12.ma.us

    We are so excited to begin our work together at Hopkins this year! Enjoy the last few days of summer!

  • This past spring, Marijane Hackett and Dr. MacLeod, along with Tim Kearnan and Lauren Dubeau provided two public forums for the purpose of inviting questions, providing clarification and addressing community concerns regarding Co-Teaching.  Although well attended, I understand that many families were not able to attend and that an overview explaining the model may be appreciated. Please click here to read Dr. MacLeod's letter.

    Dr. MacLeod wants to make the community aware of an upcoming police training to take place at the Hopkins School on the afternoon of Monday, August 25th. 

    The CEMLEC SWAT team will provide Rapid Deployment/Active Shooter training to the Hopkinton Police Department. This 8-hour training program is structured around the “First Responder” and consists of a classroom presentation, followed by practical exercises (formations, movement within the structure, room entry, rescue techniques, etc.) and training scenarios. This is a basic course designed to introduce or refresh officers in the Rapid Deployment/Active Shooter Response technique. The Course is taught by instructors certified through the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA), International Association of Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors (IALEFI) and/or other National/State certifying entities. 

    As a result of this training, the school will be closed and the Hopkins portion of the loop road will not be accessible.
