 The first school at Hazel, Washington opened in 1903 and was a simple school house made from cedar boards that were cut on site. High flood waters from the Stillaguamish River damaged much of the town and completely destroyed the school in 1924. The "new" Hazel school was built in the same year and consolidated with the Darrington School District # 319. In 1932 the Hazel Shcool was closed and all of the students were bussed to the Whitehorse School.
According to Hazel Holms, now deceased, in 1922, the students at the Hazel School were, Mildred O'Conner, Albert Ensen in the 7th grade, Bill Pierson in the 5th grade, Blanche and Hazel Knights in the 2nd grade, Helen and Elizabeth Jackson, Nancy Ann Kann in the 1st grade and Hazel.
