The 2020-21 and 2021-22 school year calendars have been approved by the Hopkins School Board. The first day of school for both years is before Labor Day. We will continue to use a tiered school start for new and returning students at the secondary level. We will also continue to schedule an all-staff professional development day on Election Day for both years.

A list of the dates for both years is provided below. These dates will be added to our Google calendars in the next couple of weeks and a printable calendar will be available in January.
