There will be a 2-hour Delayed Opening for Friday, March 6th. Please note the following three items:
- All sections of the school – from Nursery through Grade 12 – will begin at 10:00 am.
- If your bus company arrives at your home at the regular time or if you need to drop-off your child at school at 8:00 am, Waldorf will be open with limited staff at 8:00 am.
- Bus companies respond to decisions made by the individual school district. Therefore, it is possible that when the Waldorf School has a delayed opening, other school districts may be closed or open for a regular school day, thereby causing difficulty with your child's transportation. Please confirm with your individual bus company how they handle such situations and consider transportation alternatives.
There is no better way to understand the Waldorf School of Garden City then by spending time on campus. Take a campus tour, learn about admission and financial aid in detail and speak with students working diligently in classes. During your visit, observe the day-to-day life of students here. Be proactive. Ask a few questions, and then ask some more. We offer a variety of ways for you to experience campus life throughout the year.
