At the March 15 School Board Meeting, the Hopkins School Board unanimously accepted the recommendation of the Hopkins COVID-19 Mitigation Team to shift our district-wide masking policy for students and staff from requiring masks to strongly recommending masks. This change now includes all early childhood and preschool programs.
Hopkins is committed to the goals of Vision 2031 and the health and safety of our students and staff.
Now more than ever, our scholars need the qualities of the graduation traits in a world that is rapidly evolving. Regardless of what the world looks like, our core values hold true and these are the traits we will instill in our scholars that will set them apart from their peers. Whether in distance learning, in-person learning, or a hybrid of the two, we are committed to the goals of Vision 2031.

Our Ongoing Commitment
Whether distance learning or in person, we are committed to providing high-quality, rigorous instruction which sparks critical thinking while inspiring optimistic innovation.
When we co-create a culture where every child has a voice and is empowered, it benefits every child. As we develop and transition into new learning models, we will continue our work in creating anti-racist teaching practices.
Social-Emotional Wellness Culture
We love our students and are dedicated to fostering growth in empathy and developing holistic habits. Social-emotional learning will co-occur with academic learning to enhance student intellectual growth — not replace it — and we will vigilantly integrate social-emotional curriculum through a culturally-responsive lens.
