Making in-person school safe for our students, staff, and families is our highest priority. The following protocols will be in place to ensure that school is safe for our staff and students.

There are easy steps we can all take to maintain health and safety in our buildings. Listed below are measures we will ask you to take to keep our school community safe: 

Step One: Complete Your Daily Health Screening  

Everyone entering a Hopkins Public School building (students, staff, or visitors) is required to complete a self-check for symptoms before coming to school using our Daily Symptom Checklist. Parents, please go through this screening before the school day on days when your child is scheduled to be in school for in-person learning. The Daily Symptom Checklist is also available in Spanish, Somali, and Hmong.

Step Two: Practice the Four W's 

Hopkins students and staff will be asked to practice the Four W's while on the bus and at school:


Step Three: Be Prepared 

  • Students should bring 3 clean face masks each day.

  • Caregivers should stay in their car for student drop off and pick ups.

  • Caregivers and visitors will have limited access to the buildings for essential visits only. 

Reporting an absence is important. Even if it is a Distance Learning day, it is important to report student absences to your school’s attendance office.
