COVID UPDATE: Summer Parent-Child Programs are happening on campus! Sign up now for sessions in JULY.
The Waldorf School on the Roaring Fork is nestled on 13-acres with access to the Roaring Fork River. The Pre-K – 8th-grade curriculum empowers students with the courage to think freely, the will to succeed, and the capacity to learn. It challenges students to explore, ask questions, and connect with the world around them.
With respect to the State of Colorado’s Coronavirus mandates, WSRF is limiting its summer programming to parent-child classes only. (i.e.: No drop-off programming.) The school’s operation plan will leverage the campus’s expansive outdoor spaces to help ensure the safety and wellbeing of all participants. Group sizes will be capped at 10 to meet current requirements. All state and county guidelines will be followed, with the program subject to adjustments and reevaluation as needed under any changing health or safety concerns.
The school is currently enrolling for the 2020-21 school year and working with Garfield County officials to finalize a C-19 operation plan.
