Locator Cards

The Town of Hopkinton has developed and adopted a new policy for the issuance of locator cards. To obtain a locator card, one of the child’s/student’s parents, guardians or a person acting in loco parentis or acting on behalf of homeless children/students must respond to the Town Clerk’s Office and provide the following documents: 

  1. A valid photo identification, such as a current RI motor vehicle operator’s license with current street address, state identification card or passport; 
  2. A certified copy of the child’s/student’s birth certificate; 
  3. Proof of residency, such as a piece of mail with a current address, tax bill, utility bill, executed property deed or some other proof of residency; 
  4. If not a homeowner, a rental lease agreement granting possession of a dwelling and verification of occupancy by landlord; 
  5. In addition, an Affidavit of Residency/Homelessness, provided by the Town Clerk’s Office must be completed and attested to. 

*An English translation must be provided for any documents not in English. 

There may be a delay of a few days before a locator card can be issued while eligibility for enrollment is being determined.
