Covid-19 Plan

Maine Coast Waldorf School has taken many steps to ensure the safety of everyone in the community. Our comprehensive plan includes the universal masking of all students and faculty both indoors and outdoors, and is adaptable for a wide variety of situations. Read our full plan. 

Current Operation Status: Level 1

At Maine Coast Waldorf School, the 2020-21 school year will foster independent thinking, creative problem solving and a sense of social responsibility more collectively than any year in our 35-year history. 

The health and safety of each child and family in our community have been considered in the context of the best available scientific and medical information available. The faculty, administration, and Board of MCWS have worked tirelessly since spring 2020 to plan for this year’s blueprint, with the wise counsel of our COVID Health and Safety Advisory Committee as well as Executive Orders by the Governor of the state of Maine. 

A child studies in an outdoor classroom To fulfill our mission, on-campus learning is a priority. Our 75 acres of fields, forests, gardens, pollinator habitat and woodland trails will certainly be an asset for the return to school. MCWS outdoor classrooms will be ready for discovery and exploration. 

Maine Coast Waldorf School will operate out of an abundance of caution and will require masks/cloth facial coverings—indoors and outdoors—for everyone while on campus.
