Hopkinton Public Schools superintendent Carol Cavanaugh emailed schools families on Wednesday — for the second time this month — with a request that community members refrain from using the outdoor track and tennis courts at the high school/middle school complex.
“In recent conversations with building level administration, I have learned that community members are accessing the schools’ track and tennis courts during the regular school day,” Cavanaugh wrote. “While we would typically be willing to share our space, during the pandemic we will be needing to access those spaces with much more frequency. Additionally, in an effort to keep our kids safe, we are trying to limit their contact with others. The end result is that we are asking community members not to access the track and the tennis courts during regular school time. I hope people understand that at the heart of this request are first student safety and second academic programming.”
