Winter 2020-2021 - START of Term Information

Dear Parents,

We hope that you have enjoyed your Christmas and New-Year celebrations.

KIU Academy plans on resuming classes starting January 5, 2021. Due to the COVID-19 situation we continue to use the same school schedule as for the fall term. The only changes will be to the elementary after school activities. For more details, please see the letter sent with Elementary Report Cards and the link below:

WINTER TERM School Schedule

Please note that the smaller basketball court is no longer available starting January 2021. That area is being converted into a parking lot for Osaka Siren (the company across the street). We ask parents to make sure not to park their cars in that area. The current parking lot in front of “A building” will still be available for KIUA parents to park cars. 

Regarding precautionary measures due to COVID-19, we plan on continuing to follow the recommendations issued by the Japanese government (Ministry of Education). Please review and be familiar with our health policies:

KIUA COVID-19 Health and Safety Policies - (ENG)

We ask that you continue to monitor your child’s health condition and fill the Health Check-up Sheet for December-January. Students should bring the completed form every day starting from the first day of school this term (January 5, 2021).

In order to stay informed, we strongly encourage you to check our communication channels frequently (KIU Academy News website ( ), your FAMILY PORTAL (Renweb) account and the email address you provided the school with).

We look forward to resuming classes and assisting parents in educating their children. May God bless you and your families this winter.
