Hopkinton Today: Tuesday, April 27


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.

One day after reporting two new cases of COVID-19 in the Hopkinton High School community, HHS principal Evan Bishop emailed families to announce there were five more cases reported on Monday, the first day of school after April vacation and also the first day returning to full-time in-person learning at the high school.

The Hopkinton Music Association is sponsoring the 16th annual Hopkinton Community Summer Band. Individuals 14 years and older in the greater Hopkinton community who played an instrument in the past or currently plays an instrument are welcome to join.

This week’s Business Profile highlights the Sports & Swim Summer Camp at Westboro Tennis & Swim Club, where a safe and successful summer camp experience begins the week of June 21.

Town meetings tonight include the Conservation Commission (7).
