UPDATE TO WEATHER WARNINGS & SCHOOL CLOSINGS

We would like to inform you of a change to the school closure policy. On p. 26 of the new Parent-Student Handbook it states, “Classes will be cancelled if there is a severe weather warning (keihoh) for the YAMASHIRO CHUBU region of Kyoto prefecture at 7:00 AM.” Because warnings are now issued by city rather than region, the new policy is: “Classes will be cancelled if there is a severe weather warning (keihoh) for KYOTANABE-SHI at 7:00 AM.”

If students leave home before 7:00 AM, it is up to the parents to decide if they should come to school that day. Students who come to school during a school closure will either go home by themselves (if able to do so) or remain at school until an arrangement with a parent/guardian is made. Students should not come to school if there is a severe weather warning in their residence’s area.
