WSA Returns to On-Campus Learning
 
The Waldorf School of Atlanta reopened its doors to students on August 12, 2020 for the start of the new school year! Faculty, staff, and the WSA Covid-19 Task Force worked diligently throughout the summer 2020 to determine the best way to open and operate safely. The Task Force created the WSA Health & Safety Plan (see below) to provide clarity and guidance on how to minimize the health and safety risks throughout the school year. Faculty, staff and parent volunteers created new outdoor classrooms and learning spaces are where students spend their day and maintain physical distance. Faculty, staff, and students all wear masks (except for early childhood students), and have ample access to the hand-washing stations! Time indoors is limited to inclement and cold weather. While indoors, students are physically distanced and larger classes are split into two pods and spaces. Also, ventilation has been improved in our indoor classrooms and spaces.

Business Office Related Frequently Asked Questions

Will there be any tuition refunds for the 2020-21 school year? 

In the event of remote learning at any time during the 2020-21 school year, The WSA Board of Trustees has approved the following refund policy for Early Childhood families for the 2020-21 school year: 

 

Early Childhood Refund Policy for 2020-21 School Year 

For the 2020-21 school year, all Early Childhood families will receive a 50% tuition credit for every week we are in remote learning (Learning Beyond the Classroom) with the acknowledgement that our youngest students are not able to fully benefit from a Waldorf experience while being at home. In order to work within the constraints of our budget, up to 10 weeks of the weekly credit will be applied towards the 2020-21 school year. For any weeks of remote learning after the 10 weeks, the 50% weekly credit will be applied to the following school year of 2021-22 and will be based on the 2021-22 tuition rates (thus providing a greater future benefit).
