COMMUNITY UPDATE

Maine Coast Waldorf School is pleased to be planning our return to school on August 26 with safety precautions and best practices in place for COVID-19. Our extensive plan includes universal mask-wearing, social distancing, and outdoor classrooms on our beautiful 75 acres of fields, forests, and gardens. 

We realize that these are unsettling times. It is the school’s aim to make smart, collaborative, evidence-based decisions that keep our community maximally safe, uphold the educational mission of the school, and promote the public health. At the same time, we hold everyone in the warmth of community, so that we may navigate these uncertainties better together.
