UPDATE: July 3, 2021

Dear Parents,

We hope that you and your family are doing well.

As the end of the spring trimester approaches, we would like to update you on the following.

Because of persistent concerns related to COVID-19 that resulted in the extension of the State of Emergency in Kyoto until June 20, KIU Academy has decided that:

  1. In person Parent-Teacher Conferences are cancelled this term. Please feel free, however, to contact your child's homeroom teacher by phone or email. We hope to be able to have regular conferences next term.
  2. Midterm Grades will be issued June 11 (they will be emailed directly to parents). If you have questions or concerns, please contact your child's homeroom teacher.
  3. MS-HS Sports Day will be postponed to fall term. Therefore June 21 will  be a regular school day for MS-HS (the substitute holiday due to Sports Day reverts to a regular class day). The tentative date for the event is October 16. 
  4. The MS-HS Camp (grades 6-11) that was planned to be held at the National Noto Youth Friendship Center has been cancelled. In its place we are planning a different activity. More details about this will be sent to parents in the coming days.

Thank you for your understanding, cooperation and support. 

Haroldo Simoes
