Halton Waldorf School is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our students and faculty, while offering an educational experience that is consistent with Waldorf Education. There are number of requirements mandated by the Ontario Ministry of Education to keep our students and faculty safe during their time on-campus and inside our school buildings. We will resume in-person learning with enhanced health protocols in place.
UPDATE: April 12, 2021 ~ Campus Closure Announcement
The Ontario Government, determined that all private elementary and secondary school students province-wide will move to distance learning following the April break. See the full news release here.
Our school will pivot to distance learning mode for elementary and high school students, effective April 26th. Childcare for non-school-age children will remain open - this means our preschool program will return as planned on April 26th.
We acknowledge that this year has been a disruptive and challenging time for everyone, and my thoughts are with our entire community who have faced our current reality with strength, courage and resilience. As we receive additional information, we will share it with our families.
COVID-19 Action Plan
Our changes and precautions have been implemented carefully and intentionally and will be communicated to students with compassion in an age appropriate manner.
Halton Waldorf School aims to create a culture of collective care. The students are involved in strengthening this culture and the adults will carry the responsibility for managing the changes needed to mitigate risks. The success of this plan will depend on the entire community working together to support the implementation of these procedures and protocols.
We encourage families to use the Ontario school screening tool.
Answer the questions to help you decide if your child can attend school.
Everyone in your household must stay home if anyone has COVID-19 symptoms
or is waiting for test results after experiencing symptoms.
Stay home until the person with symptoms gets a negative COVID-19 test result,
or is cleared by public health, or is diagnosed with another illness.
