Volunteers/HSD Heroes

Volunteer Badges available from 7:30am-1:00pm

Each school year, parents and community members join the Hazelwood School District (HSD) as new HSD Heroes/Volunteers.

HSD Heroes/Volunteers are an integral part of the success of students and staff in HSD by serving in ways such as helping with classroom parties and school events to working one-on-one as a mentor to chaperoning students on field trips.

It is important for new volunteers to be aware of the process of the District’s volunteer program.

  • HSD requires all school heroes/volunteers to complete a volunteer application and agreement, as well as sign a confidentiality agreement, technology usage agreement and universal precautions statement.
  • There are two levels of volunteers within HSD.

 Level 1

  • A Level 1 HSD Heroes/Volunteer is allowed regular and frequent contact with students, can work unsupervised or one-on-one with students, or can serve in a supervisory role.
  • Criminal background checks are required for volunteers who want to serve on a Level 1 status.

To complete the criminal background check online, which has a faster response time:
