SUPERINTENDENT PUBLIC FORUM
12/5/13 Proposed Revisions to Transportation Policy EEA
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members:
In the interest of providing you with timely communication regarding proposed revisions to the Hopkinton Public Schools’ Transportation Policy (EEA) we invite you to join us for an overview of proposed updates and changes related to bus pass application deadlines and late penalties, childcare scheduling, bus stop switching at the elementary level, and procedures for bus carry-on items. We look forward to seeing you there and sharing this important information with you.
Date: December 5th
Location: Middle School Lecture Hall
Time: 6:00PM – 7:00PM
General notifications sent through iContact will no longer be available after January 31st. If you have not already signed up for SchoolWires notifications please do so as soon as possible. Until December 31st we are sending all general notifications through both systems but starting February 1st 2014 in an effort to consolidate resources we will no longer be using iContact for our distribution lists. We will then solely be using Schoolwires, the company that hosts our district website to post announcements and email parents.
On the school website (www.hopkinton.k12.ma.us) each school has an announcements link available under the "Parents" drop down menu. When the school or district makes an announcement it will get posted to the website and parents that subscribe will get an email message. We will continue to differentiate messages based on grade level when appropriate and therefore, the announcement pages will be further filtered by grade level relevance.
If you already have a SchoolWires account you can skip the instructions for registration and jump straight to the directions in the How To Guide on how to manage your account on the school website. Please note that the link at the bottom of this email refers to the management of your iContact account, not your SchoolWires account. Many parents at the middle school have already created a SchoolWires account for the electronic forms. For parents that have Kindergarten students at Center school there will be no change because this system is already in place there.
These systems are totally independent of our student management system, iPass. We will continue to utilize iPass/iAutoAlert for all emergency communications.

Dear Parents/Guardians/Community Members:
This morning, representatives of Hopkinton’s School Committee (Nancy Alvarez Burdick and Ellen Scordino [not pictured]), Board of Selectmen (John Mosher), Center School Principal Lauren Dubeau, Elementary School Building Committee (Mike Shepard), HPS Director of Finance Ralph Dumas, State Representative Carolyn Dykema, and District Director for Senator Spilka, Puja Mehta (not pictured), joined me at the MSBA Board of Directors meeting in Boston. I am pleased to announce that we have received an invitation into the Massachusetts School Building Authority’s (MSBA) eligibility period. Over the next few days we expect a letter confirming this invitation and providing additional detail.
Preliminary Eligibility Requirements will need to be completed in order for us to proceed. Once completed, the MSBA will review our documents and consider a vote to invite the Town of Hopkinton into the Capital pipeline, allowing us to begin the Feasibility Study Process. The MSBA Board of Directors noted Hopkinton’s representation at their meeting this morning, stating how important it is to have such unified support.
Cathy MacLeod, Ed.D.
