Dear WSSB Community,
Due to poor air quality caused by the Thomas fire, a decision has been made to keep the school closed until the conclusion of the Winter Break. After consulting weather and fire forecasts, current and possible future staff and family evacuations, family vacation planning, plus the necessity of cleaning up the campus prior to the return of the students, we just couldn’t see how it would be safe and responsible to reopen school next week.In the meantime, if there is anything we can do to support those in need, please let us know. Besides communicating with your child’s teacher about educational activities that can benefit his or her learning process during this unexpectedly long break, parents may want to consider ways that the children could collectively contribute to relief efforts for those directly impacted by the disaster. Our children have big hearts and it is always beneficial to provide them with opportunities to channel their thoughts and feelings into deeds.On behalf of the faculty and all the staff at the Waldorf School of Santa Barbara, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season. School will be back in session Monday, January 8, 2018!
Many blessings to you and yours,Ted Tazer-MyersHead of School
