Retirement Celebration 2020

The Hopkins School Board will host a virtual Retirement Recognition during the June 2 School Board Meeting.
May 29, 2020

This year, 29 employees are retiring from Hopkins Public Schools. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, we are not able to celebrate in person. Even though we can’t come together physically, the Hopkins School Board will host a virtual Retirement Recognition on June 2 at 7 p.m. during the School Board Meeting. The Retiree Recognition will be the first item on the agenda. 

The recognition will be streamed live on YouTube at this link: https://youtu.be/_IwX8J5H0GI
We hope you will be able to join us. 


Retirees, please fill out this short questionnaire about your time at Hopkins Public Schools as soon as possible. We will use this information to inform the virtual celebration and also to compile your biography, which will be posted on our website.
