Healthy in Hopkins

There are easy steps we can all take to maintain health and safety in our buildings.

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:

Graphic says Watch Your Distance and shows two students sitting at desks with an arrow showing several feet apart.
Graphic says Wash Your Hands and shows soapy water at sink with clock depicting 20 seconds.
Graphic says Wear a Face Covering and shows a person wearing a face mask over their mouth and nose.
Graphic says When Sick, Stay Home and shows a person in bed holding their head.

Step Three: Be Prepared

  • Students should bring 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.

Vaccination Clinics

In partnership with a local medical group called CommunityCare Clinics, Hopkins Public Schools will host a second vaccination clinic for our scholars ages 12 and up on June 10. 

The clinic is open to all Hopkins families over the age of 12. The timing is appropriate for anyone who received the first dose at one of our Hopkins clinics in May to receive their second. However, first doses can be administered too. 

All scholars ages 12 and up may attend this clinic. The clinics are now open to all Hopkins Public Schools family member ages 12 and up. Hopkins is not able to provide transportation; however, Lyft and Uber are both offering free rides for vaccinations. Kids must be accompanied by an adult.  

There is no need to make an appointment. Please note, anyone under the age of 12 must bring an authorization form to the clinic.
