Alexandria private school to move into Old Town church

Update 6/1 — Potomac Crescent Waldorf School said reached out to ALXnow to provide an update on some of the details. PCWS is not planning to return to the Waypoint site after departing at the end of this year. The plan will also not have pickup or drop-off on St. Asaph’s Street.

Earlier: The kids at Potomac Crescent Waldorf School need a place to stay, and Old Town Community Church is offering to take them in.

According to an application headed to the Planning Commission next month, the private early elementary program is hoping to move into the church at 212 S. Washington Street for the beginning of the upcoming school year.

The Potomac Crescent Waldorf School teaches grades 1-3, as well as a preschool program and kindergarten program. The application noted that the new temporary stay will give students at the school an opportunity to explore local parks and museums once they reopen.

Under noise impacts, the application warned that nearby residents may hear an uptick in children playing flutes and ukuleles.
