Mission Statement

  • The Mission of Hopkins County Schools is to unite as one team to learn and inspire.

Announcements

  • Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. Hopkins County Schools would like to encourage our families and students to join us in our efforts to focus on school attendance because of its positive impact on student success. Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Your student can start building good attendance habits now so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. To learn more, read the beginning-of-the-year attendance letter to parents/guardians.

  • Bobbie Schaffer Orten, Family Resource Youth Services Center coordinator at West Hopkins School, Bobbie Schaffer Orten receives #LionChaser Award at board meeting. received the #LionChaser / #GiantSlayer Award at the April 15 Board of Education meeting. Mrs. Bobbie puts the microscope on the basic needs of kids. In a day and age when everyone wants kids to perform well academically, kids must also feel confident in just coming to school and being the person we all know they can be. She has been instrumental in helping students maintain that confidence. One way she has accomplished this is reaching out to families with assistance in laundry services for student clothing. This alone has made a major impact on student self-confidence and improved attitudes and attendance. The WHS community is one BIG family. Mrs. Bobbie goes above and beyond to meet the basic needs of children.
