Hopkinton Today: Wednesday, Oct. 14

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.

Hopkinton Middle School principal Alan Keller emailed HMS families Monday evening to announce that “a person in the HMS community has tested positive” for COVID-19. The school remained open Tuesday, while those who may have come in contact with the individual were to receive further instructions.

At last Tuesday’s Conservation Commission meeting, the commission voted to approve the Department of Public Works’ request to conduct the triennial 8-foot drawdown of Lake Maspenock in an effort to kill weeds at the bottom of the lake, despite concerns related to the current drought.

A Women’s March will be held at Hopkinton Town Common this Saturday from 10-11:30 a.m., joining similar marches planned across the country in support of women’s rights, human rights and social justice.

Town committee meetings tonight include the Cemetery Commission (5), Housing Authority (6), Sustainable Green Committee (6:30), Board of Appeals (7) and Growth Study Committee (7).
