Hopkinton Public Schools Superintendent Carol Cavanaugh reached out to the schools community Monday to share that a middle school student had been struck by a car in the morning. The student was in the crosswalk of the high school driveway, Cavanaugh stated, and the car was moving “very slowly at the time, so the student was able to walk away from the accident.”
“We are sure that many people saw emergency personnel out in front of the high school/middle school complex this morning,” Cavanaugh continued. “So, we are writing to let you know that the student is OK.”
Cavanaugh thanked Hopkinton’s emergency personnel as well as the HMS nurses for their quick responses.
“The area in front of the high school/middle school is very busy in the mornings,” Cavanaugh added. “Because there are so many buses, parent drivers, student drivers and walkers, we implore everyone to be extra vigilant at drop-off and pickup times. Safety is paramount for every member of our school community and broader community.”
