Dear School Families and Community Members,
Waldorf High School of Massachusetts Bay is joining the worldwide effort to help slow the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus. While there have been no known cases within our school, the broader community needs us to support the wellness of all by staying home.
Students will not be attending school in person until, at the earliest, May 4. As that time approaches, we will reassess the public health situation and announce further plans. We look forward to returning to school as soon as it is responsible to do so.
We have cancelled the Arts & Exhibition Evening that was planned for March. From March 23 to April 17, students will continue their Waldorf education from home via distance learning. Students should expect to be fully engaged during the school day in creative work integrated with academic study, including hands-on projects and not just “screen time.” Teachers will be using the week of March 16th to prepare their distance learning courses, and will be sending specific details as they become available.
We are continuing to accept applications and inquiries for the 2020-2021 school year in grades 9-12. In lieu of a student visit day, we will invite prospective families to connect with our warmly welcoming school community through phone or video chats with current families and faculty members.
We understand this time is challenging to families on many levels and we deeply appreciate your support and collaboration as we face these uncertain times as a caring community.
--Cedar Oliver, Director of School, Waldorf High School of Massachusetts Bay
