Dear Parents,


In view of the recent drop in coronavirus cases and the removal of Tokyo’s emergency declaration, we are pleased to announce that WICS will be returning to in-person classes on Monday, June 1!


We take student safety very seriously and will be implementing several policy and schedule changes to minimize risk to students.


1.      In order to reduce contact between grades and allow more physical distance between students during classes, we will be conducting:

-       elementary classes in the MORNINGS (8:30-11:50 a.m.)

-       middle/high school classes in the AFTERNOONS (1:00-4:00 p.m.)

2.      When students arrive at school, their temperature will be taken. Students with temperatures of 37.5 degrees Celsius or higher will be sent home.

3.      Classes will be the four core subjects only (English, Math, Social Studies, and Science).

4.      Each grade will use an entire floor rather than just one room.

5.      TEACHERS will move instead of students.

6.      Between each class period, classrooms will be disinfected and the air will be circulated.


If despite the additional safety measures you do not feel comfortable with your child returning to school yet, you may keep them home. They will not be counted absent. Students who stay home will watch recordings of the in-person classes they miss and will complete the homework from home.


As the school year draws to a close, you may be concerned about final examinations. While certain teachers may still require final tests/projects, MOST CLASSES will not have finals this year. We hope this puts your and your child’s minds at ease.


We have contacted some students about coming in during part or all of the month of July for extra instruction in foreign languages, art, or English.

This summer instruction is geared toward elementary and middle school students who need extra help or who simply want to learn more. If you would like your child to receive extra instruction in one or more of these subjects over the summer, please let Mrs. Lee know.


We look forward to being able to meet together once more, even if it is just for these last few weeks. Please pray that we can have a safe and smooth transition back into in-person instruction.

Humbly yours,
WICS Staff
