The Waldorf School of Louisville takes the health and safety of its community very seriously. Providing a learning environment that meets the standards as outlined by the CDC, local and state officials is our top priority.
We understand that knowledge about the COVID-19 virus changes often. Our practice is to review the recommendations provided from several sources (CDC, Team KY, Department of Regulated Child Care, Kentucky Department of Education, and Louisville Metro Health Department) for policy updates and changes. This is, therefore, a living page that will be amended in response to any changes.
We are instructing parents/guardians, teachers and staff to report positive COVID-19 test results to the school. Results can be self-reported.
Caregivers: If your child has any of the following symptoms, they might have an illness they can spread to others. Check your child for these symptoms every day before they go to school. The risk to general health extends beyond COVID-19 and we ask that with any signs of illness, children be kept home until they are symptom free for 24 hours without the use of medication.
If they do not have symptoms, send them to school as usual.

• Difficulty breathing (for students with asthma, check for a change from their baseline breathing)
• Muscle or body aches
• New loss of taste or smell
• Sore throat
• Congestion or runny nose
• Nausea or vomiting
*If you have received a positive test result, in the event of another close contact within the next 90 days, you will not be required to quarantine.
