Regarding a state of emergency

Dear Parents and Students,

As you have seen on the news, the prefectures of Tokyo, Osaka, Hyogo and Kyoto have requested that the Japanese national government declare a state of emergency in these areas. It is reported that the government will make a decision on April 23rd, and that the period of emergency will likely be between April 26th and May 9th.

If the Kyoto prefecture is included in a state of emergency declaration, KIU Academy will switch to using the "State of Emergency Schedule" (with homerooms starting at 9:40 [9:35 for high school]). This "State of Emergency Schedule" will start and end in accordance with the period of emergency that the government sets.

We do not plan any other modifications to our schedule or offering of classes unless the Kyoto prefectural government and board of education issue additional directives.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation,

H. Simoes

KIU Academy Principal
