Return to Headlines

A Message from the Superintendent about the 2021-2022 School Year

The district will welcome all students back to in-person school on Monday, August 23, 2021. I encourage all HSD parents to take advantage of this opportunity for face-to-face instruction. Our educators are eager to provide the unique educational, social, and emotional benefits of in-person school.

The return to in-person school last spring and subsequent summer school program revealed that our district has the appropriate COVID-19 mitigation strategies in place. With that success in mind, the mandatory mask requirement for all students and employees, regardless of vaccination status, will continue.

No school district can offer 100% protection from exposure to COVID-19, but the commitment to health our learning community has demonstrated will greatly reduce the risk of exposure in HSD buildings. Additionally, the district’s award-winning Help Hazelwood Get Healthy public health campaign will continue to be used as a tool to combat the spread of COVID-19. To date, approximately 600 employees and 250 students have been fully vaccinated through the campaign.

HSD will not offer a hybrid or virtual school model this August; however, the state-run Missouri Course Access Program (MOCAP) is a virtual school option that families can pursue. For more information about MOCAP, visit the district website or contact a school principal.  

As we embark on a new school year, I find comfort knowing that we have the talent, passion, resources, and character to successfully navigate any challenges we may face. Thank you for your unwavering dedication to HSD.

The academic year awaits!
