About mumps・おたふく風邪に関するお知らせ

Undefined

Dear parents,

Since mid-September we have had several cases of mumps in the elementary school. For about a week we have seen a spike in the number of cases (presently 10 confirmed or suspected). We are concerned that contagion may spread to the secondary school as well.

The incubation period is about two or three weeks. Early symptoms include: The glands under the jaw become swollen and sensitive to touch (on one or both sides); The mouth is painful when eating or when opened wide; Some people have a fever between 38℃ and 39℃ and some people have no fever.

It is most contagious a few days before the symptoms appear until four days after they appear. If your child has unusual symptoms, please take him or her to the doctor soon. If your child has mumps, please inform the school and follow your doctor’s directions concerning when your child may return to school.

保護者各位

9月中旬と10月初旬に小学部保護者の皆様へおたふく風邪(流行性耳下腺炎)の感染についてお知らせいたしましたが、今週に入って小学部での感染者が急激に増加しており(現在の感染者および感染が疑わしいは生徒10名以上)、中高部への感染拡大も懸念しております。おたふく風邪の主な症状としては、潜伏期間は2~3週間、耳下線や顎下線(片側または両側)が腫れて痛みがあります。特に口を大きく開けた時や食事の時に痛みがあります。

熱は、38度から39度の熱が出る人もいれば、出ない人もいます。感染のリスクがもっとも高いのは、耳の下が腫れる数日前から発症後4日くらいです。疑わしい症状が出た場合は、すみやかに医師の診察を受けるようにしてください。また、お子様が感染していることがわかりましたら、学校へご連絡いただき、医師の指示に従って自宅で休ませてください。

ご協力をよろしくお願いいたします。

Child Safety and Protection (CSP) Parent & Guardian CSP Explanatory session

English

Dear Parents and Guardians:

We are always grateful for your continuous support for KIU Academy. It is greatly appreciated.

As you have already been notified, we are in the middle of establishing a more comprehensive Child Safety and Protection (CSP) Policy for our school. Plans and procedures are being made to educate the school community regarding harassment, intimidation, and bullying, along with procedures for reporting alleged inappropriate behavior to the school administration and/ or legal authorities. The child protection policy will also include proactive safeguards regarding staff and student interactions and relationships.

On November 5th (Saturday) from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon at the C building Second floor lobby there will be a Parent & Guardian CSP Explanatory session for all parents and guardians who are interested in hearing the details of the CSP policies, plans and procedures. If the date and time does not work with your schedule, please contact Tony Barrera for an appointment. Barrera will provide the CSP information on an individual basis.

We plan on conducting CSP training and explanatory sessions on an annual basis. Understanding and cooperation by all parents and guardians would be greatly appreciated. If there are any questions, please contact Tony Barrera at (0774) 64-0804.

Thank you for your attention on this matter.

Special Announcement

Dear parents and guardians,

We are always grateful for your continuous support for KIU Academy. It is greatly appreciated.

When our international school accreditation was renewed, we were instructed by the accrediting agency, Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), to develop a comprehensive child protection policy with annual training for all staff and students. This should include plans and procedures that educate the school community regarding harassment, intimidation, and bullying, along with procedures for reporting alleged inappropriate behavior to the school administration and/ or legal authorities. The child protection policy should include proactive safeguards regarding staff and student interactions and relationships. As the Safety and Security manager of the school, Mr. Tony Barrera, has been assigned the responsibility to develop the child protection policy and conduct training for all staff and students.

As you may know, there are many problems related to mental, emotional and physical abuse of children in our society. While we have been blessed not to have such significant problems here at KIU Academy, we cannot take such a situation for granted. Therefore, we plan on developing a more comprehensive policy and follow up with training students and staff. We are also going to conduct explanatory sessions for parents and guardians so they can be better informed about these issues. We plan to conduct these sessions over the next two months. As we continue to develop our policies, we plan to have periodical updates and announcements for parents. Your cooperation on this issue will be greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions, please directly contact Tony Barrera.

 

Thank you for your attention on this matter.
