Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to the Hopkinton Elementary Schools. This handbook will provide you with information about Harold Martin School. This handbook contains rules, procedures and services provided to students and parents.

Our school strives to maintain a positive and motivating environment through caring, patience, and respect for students, parents, and one another. We recognize that learning is a shared activity and we aim to strengthen community and parent connections. In the Hopkinton Elementary Schools we strive to:

1. Nurture the personal growth of all students,

2. Help students develop skills that will help them to become productive, responsible contributors to society and life-long learners.

Communication is vitally important for our working relationship:

  • First, sign up for our HMS Email List
  • For the latest news, feel free to head to our web site.
  • Each school employee has an email address that follows the formula: first initial last name (no spaces) @ EXAMPLE: Tom Brady’s email address would be:
  • Every Friday our weekly Parent Flash will be coming home in hard copy as well as in your email inbox if you have signed up for the Email List.
  • Also, check our our monthly podcasts which you can access on our web site’s home page as well as here.
  • I'll see you every month at PTA, which meets the first Wednesday in our preschool room.

We welcome parents and community members to take an active role in the elementary schools. Working together as a team, we will be able to provide a strong foundation for our children. Together, we can make it a great year!
