Hi 6th and 7th Grade Parents,
It is that time of year where your students get to select their Exploratory class options. On Monday 5/9/22 your student will receive in email asking them to choose their selection for next year. Please discuss the choices with them. Students may choose Band, Choir, Both Band and Choir or Neither and just do the exploratory courses. Some of the Exploratory classes are Tech Trends, Current Events, Art of Diversity and many others.

Food Service Updates
Families of Hopkins Public Schools:
Beginning with the first day of school for the 2022-23 school year, school meals will no longer be free to all students. Congress did NOT pass the waivers to continue free meals to all students. We will go back to applications to determine free and reduced meal eligibility. Those applications will be available after July 1st. We strongly encourage all families to fill out the applications on-line to ease the process, information will be in your back to school packet.
Thanks and have a great last week of April!
Cell phones are to be turned off and kept in their lockers during the school day. Cell phones that are used during the school day will be confiscated and must be picked up by a parent.
If a student needs to contact a parent/guardian, they can go to the office to either use their cell phone or call from the office phone. If a parent needs to reach a student, they can leave a message for their student with the office.
