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.

The Parks & Recreation Commission at its meeting last Wednesday discussed the jurisdictional issue that arose between the department and the town over the storage of Main Street Corridor Project construction materials at the Carrigan Field parking lot on Marshall Avenue.

Hopkinton’s latest COVID-19 update shows 45 active cases in town and includes information on changes to the school drop-off procedure, with K-5 students set to return to full-time in-person learning today.

The Hopkinton High School football team picked up its first win of the season on Saturday when quarterback Cole Salyards scored a touchdown with 11 seconds remaining to beat visiting Medfield.

Hopkinton’s Jimmy Hervol won his first event on the Minor League Golf Tour, posting a 1-shot victory in a rain-shortened tournament at Indian Spring Country Club in Boynton Beach, Florida, last week.

This week’s Business Profile highlights Touchstone Community School, which offers an exciting summer camp for pre-K through Grade 8 that reflects the Grafton school’s progressive, playful and joyful approach to learning.

Town meetings tonight include the Board of Health (5:30).
