COVID-19 Information

  • Our campus is closed while distance learning continues until the end of the school year on June 11, 2020. 
  • As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve with new and unfolding information.  All California schools await the state’s guidelines for re-opening campuses for the new 2020-2021 school year.  
  • We are staying on top of news from the state, county and city daily and waiting for more clear guidance for schools.
  • We are planning for in-person learning in the Fall.
  • If you are hearing information about LBUSD, know that we do not necessarily need to follow in LBUSD’s footsteps as they have a much larger population and need to handle situations that differ from ours. We are smaller, more flexible, and more nimble. 
  • We have a task-force committee of ten dedicated members, each professionals in their own field, who will help to guide the re-opening of our campus. The fields of these committee members include: medicine, infection prevention, education, project management, architecture/space planning, environmental health, and research. 
  • Our Faculty, Board and Administration continue to be on Waldorf Association calls with schools all over the country who are paving the way.
  • We are considering all areas on our campus, as well as nearby green spaces for instruction next year.
  • We will be sending out surveys to all of our Grades and Early Childhood families to learn about your personal experience this spring as well as your interests, concerns and hopes for next year.
