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.
The town turned out in big numbers for Hopkinton Family Day on Saturday and enjoyed an afternoon of activities and entertainment, capped by fireworks that evening.
As part of the Main Street Corridor Project, work this week will include raising castings on manholes project-wide. The eastbound detour from Main Street to Pleasant Street to Maple Street to Hayden Rowe Street and back to Main Street will be utilized. Additionally, conduit work on Hayden Rowe Street will necessitate a detour for southbound traffic around the Town Common via Ash Street to Park Street and back to Hayden Rowe. Northbound traffic will not be impacted.
The Elmwood School replacement project, school enrollment and the attendance policy were among the topics of discussion at the Hopkinton School Committee meeting on Thursday. Elementary level administrators also presented improvement plans for the board to review.
The Hopkinton High School football team improved to 2-0 with a 22-18 victory over Algonquin on Friday night, and we have photos.
The Hopkinton Fire Department will open its station to the public on Sunday, Oct. 16, from from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. for its annual open house. Residents (adults and children) will have an opportunity to view demonstrations, learn about fire safety and tour the station.
