Special KCS Announcement Regarding School Closure

Dear KCS Families,

The KCS Board has made the decision to extend our school closure through March 27, 2020, with the possibility of ending the closure sooner. It is our highest priority to continue to provide your child with an excellent education which reflects the mission and vision of KCS and continues to meet our student learning objectives. During this time of school closure we will attend to the academic needs of our students by utilizing Distance Learning via Google Classroom. Your child’s teacher will be sending an email with a link to Google Classroom. Some students are already in the process of using this internet platform. I am attaching a document explaining KCS Guidelines for Distance Learning which include Student Expectations, Parent Guidelines, and instructions for using Google Classroom.

DURING THIS TIME OF SCHOOL CLOSURE, THE KCS CAMPUS IS CLOSED. Should you have any questions for your child’s teacher, the school office, or me, please do not hesitate to contact us by email or by calling the school office.

We realize that we are undergoing an unprecedented time of school closures around the country of Japan and the world. I am thankful for our dedicated staff, our hardworking students (whom we miss very much), and our supportive families. I am confident that our students will continue to excel during these days ahead!

“The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-25)

In Christ,

Debbie Baumann


KCS理事会は、2020年3月27日まで臨時休校とする決断を下しました。状況により休校措置が早めに解除される場合もあります。KCSの教育理念とビジョンにも示されているように、本校はお子様の学習目標に達するために素晴らしい教育を継続して提供することを最優先としています。この休校期間中、Google Classroomという遠隔学習を利用して生徒の学習ニーズに対応します。お子様の担任教師がGoogle Classroomへのリンクを記載した電子メールを送信いたします。一部の生徒はすでにこのインターネットプラットフォームを使用したことがあります。KCS Guidelines for Distance Learning(KCS遠隔学習のためのガイドライン)を添付いたします。このガイドラインには、生徒がする事、保護者のためのガイドライン、Google Classroomの利用方法などが記載されています。



「願わくは主があなたを祝福し、あなたを守られるように。願わくは主がみ顔をもってあなたを照し、あなたを恵まれるように。 願わくは主がみ顔をあなたに向け、あなたに平安を賜わるように」』。(民数記6章24-26節)

In Christ,

Debbie Baumann
