City of Lakes Waldorf School Safe Start Campaign
We are excited to begin the 2020-21 school year on September 2 and to welcome students back to our campus for the first time since school buildings were closed last March. In order to return to school, we are making changes to our school campus, programs and schedule to promote health and safety for our students and staff. Toward that end — we have launched the City of Lakes Waldorf School Safe Start Campaign which will fund the school’s strategies to mitigate against the spread of COVID-19 as children return to school.
Our preparations for the extraordinary school year ahead include the hiring of a COVID-19 Program Coordinator/School Nurse, expanded grades classrooms to allow for required physical distancing, significant measures to improve air flow and quality, and purchase of PPE and outdoor sinks. In addition, we will invest in structures to support outdoor learning and improve hygiene with hands-free faucets and paper towel dispensers. None of these COVID-19 inspired improvements are a part of our normal operating budget but are necessary in the face of our return to school during a global pandemic.
Our Board of Trustees has generously initiated a challenge match raising $10,000 to offset the costs of these preparations and spark community engagement. We are asking for your support of the City of Lakes Waldorf School Safe Start Campaign. Your support will help our school maintain financial health in these unprecedented times and create the best start of school possible for our students, staff, and families.
A gift of any amount will make a difference! We know that these are challenging times for many and appreciate your willingness to support our campaign. If you are able to give a recurring gift, that is a simple way to support the school throughout this important year ahead.
Thank you for your generous support of our vibrant school.
