Following on from a meeting with the Japanese Council of International Schools, the Board Chair and the Senior Leadership Team, KIS will continue Distance Learning until 27 March.
It is the school’s intention to return to face to face lesson on the Monday 6 April. This is reliant on no further government directives or negative changes in the environment.
This is not a decision we make lightly but it is a decision made with the health of the entire KIS community as a priority.
Further reinforcing this decision is the recent cases of COVID-19 in a Kyoto daycare centre and the cancelling of all IB workshops in Osaka in March.
As a school we will continue to try and support the community any way we can. If we can offer alternatives to the school community, we will communicate this immediately. Some opportunities we are looking to provide are more experiences in the Virtual Library; and Parent Teacher Conferences (virtual).
Tomorrow the Week 2 Parent Survey goes out. Please let us know about your experience.
