Hopkinton Today: Wednesday, Oct. 13

573

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.

Superintendent of Schools Carol Cavanaugh announced Tuesday that Hopkinton High School has been approved by the state’s Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to make masks voluntary for COVID-vaccinated individuals, although nothing will change unless the School Committee votes to implement the new policy.

Hopkinton middle school student Harini Jeyaraman and 697 others set a mark recognized by Guinness World Records for the most people performing a choreographed dance online simultaneously. Jeyaraman worked over the summer to learn the dance with more than 800 other bharatanatyam dancers worldwide.

Talent and team chemistry is a combination every high school coach hopes to have. This season, the Hopkinton High School girls volleyball team has shown it has a plethora of both, and the result has been rolling through half of the regular season without a single loss.

Hopkinton High School golf coach Bill Phaneuf has a problem filling out his lineup, but it’s one that most coaches would happily take — selecting eight players from a deep and talented group.

This week’s edition of Senior Snippets includes information on programs including one that helps participants put together their own life story.

Town meetings tonight include the Parks & Recreation Commission (5), Board of Appeals (7) and Veterans Celebration Committee (7).
