Good morning, Hopkinton! Welcome to the daily update we call Hopkinton Today — a quick recap of yesterday’s news, highlights of what’s on tap, and a video or two to brighten your morning.

Superintendent Carol Cavanaugh shared school reopening plans with anxious families during a special School Committee presentation/public forum last night. Now those families must decide whether their students will sign up for a hybrid model of in-school and remote learning or go with all remote learning.

The Hopkinton Water and Sewer Department reached out to town residents yesterday with an alert about the town’s water supply running low. Outdoor water has been banned, with limited exceptions.

The town’s latest COVID-19 update shows just one active case in town, and there are updates from the library and the state’s Department of Public Health.

The Hopkinton Center for the Arts will host two live outdoor music series over the next month, starting with a concert by Slightly Tooned tonight and Stoney’s Wicked Din tomorrow night. All concerts are free, but tickets must be reserved via the HCA.

Hopkinton High School’s long-delayed Class of 2020 graduation is scheduled for Sunday at 10 a.m. at the HHS football field, with social distancing measures in place. It will be broadcast on HCAM.
