Hopkinton High School will remain remote through the end of the week.
“Please note that these decisions are made in consultation with Public Health Officials,” superintendent Carol Cavanaught wrote to families Wednesday. “We still have a number of faculty who must quarantine as well as 28 students who must quarantine. Further, other than today’s track meet and Thursday’s ski race, we are suspending all athletics through Sunday, January 24th; athletics, at least at this point, should resume on Monday, January 25th. There has been one other recent exposure at the high school that we are monitoring carefully. Should anything develop further from this exposure, impacted families will be notified. For all of these reasons and out of an abundance of caution, school will remain remote for Thursday and Friday. We take instruction very seriously and regret that we have to make this choice.”
All schools went remote last Friday due to the fact that “several people in the HPS community have tested positive” for COVID-19, and “as a result, extensive contact tracing is necessary,” Cavanaugh emailed families.
On Monday, Cavanaugh announced that the high school would continue to go remote through Wednesday, while all other schools in the district would return to their usual schedule starting Tuesday.
