Waldorf School of Bend remains open during the pandemic

As an ECCF, the Waldorf School of Bend's doors are open while they continue to enroll for on-site, in-person childcare and schooling for the 2020-21 academic school year

In accordance with Executive Order 20-12, and in cooperation with the Oregon Department of Education – Early Learning Division, Waldorf School of Bend has been designated as an Emergency Child Care Facility (ECCF).

In a time when all public schools have closed, as an ECCF, the Waldorf School of Bend's doors are open while they continue to enroll for on-site, in-person childcare and schooling for the 2020-21 academic school year. They offer preschool through 8th grade in-person classes on their campus located on NE Studio Road. Established in 1996, the Waldorf School enrolls less than 100 children.

"When coronavirus hit last spring, everyone was forced to adapt quickly to the new normal," said School Director Nate Brocious, "We made a plan for the fall that would allow families in Central Oregon the flexibility to safely enroll for in-person schooling. Not a lot of schools are able to provide what we can right now, but it's our plan to keep our doors open to the public for the duration of this crisis and beyond."

"We are committed to helping all families, no matter their income level or current financial situation during this public health crisis, find a place in our school if they are interested in enrolling," said Rob Clemens, Board President, "It's a matter of equity to create a financial plan that works for everyone."
