COVID-19 Community Support

Blended Learning is currently in place. See below and also see the Blended Learning - Guide for Students and Families.

The gradual reopening of public life in Japan since the initial wave of COVID-19 infections last Spring has been encouraging, but the situation remains volatile and we must acknowledge the possibility of a new wave of infection occurring at some point in the 2020-21 school year. Accordingly, we have developed three interchangeable learning models that can be flexibly deployed over the school year as the situation requires. Together, the models aim to assure continuity of learning, and along with enhanced health and hygiene measures, provide peace of mind for students, parents and staff. Descriptions of the learning models are provided below, along with further details on risk assessment, a list of health and safety procedures, and Frequently Asked Questions. This page will be updated throughout the year with other COVID-19-related developments.

For health-related questions, please contact our school nurse, Michiko Bowering, in the Health Office by email (nurse@yis.ac.jp) or phone (045-621-4027). The Health Office is open from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm on school days.
