Malley’s Order Pickup Location CHANGE

Hello Hopkins Families,
Hopkins PTA will be moving the Malley’s order pickup to the Mentor Malley’s store at 8920 Mentor Ave. Order pickup will still be the originally planned day and time, this upcoming Wednesday, March 25th from 5-7 pm. We appreciate Malleys letting us use their store for this, as they are currently closed to the public. Friends or family members are able to pick up your order for you, they just need the student’s name. You are also welcome to wait in your car and we can bring the order out for you, just beep so we know you are there for an order pick up. If you have any questions at all, or are unable to pick up your order that evening, please email Meghan at We appreciate your support, and your patience, as we all try and navigate this new territory together.
Thanks you,
Hopkins PTA


Events Postponed

Due to the school closure until April 3rd, we will be postponing all PTA events that fall within this timeframe. As soon as more information is available we will work on rescheduling the Talent Show, Boys’ Bowling Bash, and Paint Night. We are in contact with Malley’s and deciding the best solution for order pickups. Thank you for your patience as we navigate through this closure. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to us via email,



Good Afternoon Hopkins Families,

Due to the information below the Talent Show has been cancelled and this includes the rehearsal that was scheduled for this evening:

In response to the anticipated order regarding mass gatherings that Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced in a press conference this afternoon, Mentor Schools will be cancelling all gatherings that involve large groups of people other than students coming into any of our buildings until further notice. This includes performances at the Fine Arts Center or planned school family nights, for example.

School will continue to be in session. As of the time of this writing, this is the recommendation from the Ohio Governor’s office regarding K-12 education: Governor Mike DeWine is not currently recommending the closure of elementary, middle, and high schools, however, school administrators should begin planning for that possibility. Parents should also begin planning for the potential that they may need to stay home with their children or find alternate child care solutions.
