Hallway Heroes

Hallway Heroes is a Comal ISD program, much like Watch D.O.G.S, that encourages parents, relatives and community members to serves as positive role models on campus, while also being an extra set of eyes and ears to enhance school safety. Hallway Heroes aims to engage anyone who is interested in volunteering. 
 
You must be approved by the district as a volunteer before you can get started. Please complete our Online Volunteer Background Check Form at least two weeks prior to the event or date needed to volunteer.
 
Please see the flyer and FAQs below for additional information.
The purpose of Hallway Heroes is the same as Watch D.O.G.S, to provide an extra set of eyes and ears and to add an extra element of security on our campuses. Hallway Heroes is Comal ISD's rebranding of the pre-existing program, and a way to be inclusive of anyone who wishes to volunteer on campus.
 
Watch D.O.G.S (Dads of Great Students) is geared towards male role models in the community. Anyone can be a Hallway Hero! 
Anyone can volunteer to be a Hallway Hero. Parents, relatives and community members. All volunteers must be approved by the district before volunteering, and must complete our online background check at least two weeks prior to the date needed to volunteer.
Absolutely! While there will be Hallway Heroes gear available soon, you can still wear you Watch D.O.G.S gear. It doesn't matter what shirt you wear, campuses appreciate just having you on campus to help.
Some campuses may still have the Watch D.O.G.S program at their campus for the 2019-20 school year as they transition to Hallway Heroes. This is because a few campuses already renewed Watch D.O.G.S prior to the launch of Hallway Heroes.
First, make sure to fill out our Online Volunteer Background Check Form. Then contact your campus to sign up for a day to volunteer. Keep in mind your background check must be approved by the district before you can volunteer. 
As a Hallway Hero, you might:
  • Engage and talk with students throughout the campus
  • Serve as a mentor for a small group of students
  • Interact with students during special classes and social times throughout the day
  • Provide support during campus-wide events
  • Support the arrival/dismissal process
  • Provide an extra set of eyes to inspect gates and doors to ensure they are functioning properly
  • Conduct safety assessments of the campus and report findings to administration
  • Share your experiences and/or career with students who might be interest in these areas
  • Provide support for after-school/evening activites
No, you can volunteer as much time as you would like or are able to. If you are only able to come help out in the morning or part of the day, great! Your campus appreciates any time you are able to serve and will work with you to schedule your volunteer day.
