Hopkinton Today: Friday, Oct. 22


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 photo and video of the day.

In a 3-2 vote, the School Committee on Thursday decided to adopt a trial period during which time COVID-vaccinated students at Hopkinton High School can remove masks inside the building. The trial period will run from Nov. 1-19. The mask mandate will resume on Nov. 22 in anticipation of the Thanksgiving holiday and travel.

This week’s spotlighted animal available for adoption at Baypath Humane Society is Wallace, a 3-year-old cat who is very sociable but has special medical needs.

The Zoning Advisory Committee will hold its annual public forum on Monday at 7 p.m. and encourages residents to provide ideas and proposals for amendments to the zoning bylaws.
