The Help Hazelwood Get Healthy campaign is aimed at encouraging everyone who lives and works in the Hazelwood School District (HSD) area to wear a mask, practice social distancing, and wash their hands. Medical research shows there is a relationship between the COVID-19 metrics in school district buildings and the metrics in the surrounding community. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the primary zip codes HSD serves have experienced some of the highest infection rates in the state. As a result, all students began the 2020-2021 school year attending school virtually. The key to successfully returning to face-to-face learning without interruption is improving the health of the entire community.
HSD is asking the community to Help Hazelwood Get Healthy by wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, and washing their hands. Consistently taking the aforementioned steps will help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 throughout our community. The Help Hazelwood Get Healthy campaign is part of the district’s theme for the school year, Hazelwood School District: Evolving Together, which encourages people to evolve to meet the unique challenges of this school year.
