Extended Care Policy for Minnesota Waldorf School is as follows:
All MWS extended care sign-up is done through the parent portal on the mnwaldorf.org website using our self-service, pre-pay process.
For the 2020-2021 school year, to maintain social distancing, there will be two groups for both before and after care (younger and older) and a limit of 12 students in each group.
Registration will be on a first come first serve basis. Once any given day is full, registration for that day will be closed for additional enrollment. Families may register and pre-pay for up to a month at a time. Registration will be available on the Parent Portal on the third Wednesday of each month at 12:00pm, of the preceding month, for the month following.
The authorized pick-up information and health information you have provided in the TADS registration process will be utilized for your child(ren)’s extended care purposes. In the case of joint custody of a student, each parent/guardian will be asked to create their own separate account on our parent portal and schedule their own Before Care and After Care for ONLY the days for which they are responsible. Late fees will be assigned to the parent responsible for drop off or pick up on that day.
To promote social distancing, for the 20-21 school year, MWS staff will be signing students in and out of before care and after care. Parents and Guardians will be asked to call the extended care phone number when they arrive at the school and a member of the extended care staff will pick up, or release your child/ren to you and sign your child/ren in or out.
The MWS Business Office will NOT issue any refunds on pre-paid extended care unless, due to COVID-19, MWS needs to close the building, or switch to a fully remote learning platform.
