About Hokkaido International School

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS

Covid-19 Update - Hokkaido International School school responded to the governor's declaration of a state of emergency and closed the school building in two stages on February 27 and 29th, shifting all learning to online instruction for two weeks. 

After the Spring Break, March 16 ~ 20, HIS added one week of online learning but decided to return to learning in the building from March 30, while continuing to support online learning for those students left abroad or unable to return to school. 

Based upon government websites and information, Hokkaido's Covid-19 outbreak remains stable and manageable. Local public schools are scheduled and expected to reopen from the week of April 6 and HIS will continue to monitor the situation and be prepared to extend learning at the building, should conditions continue to improve, or respond to school closure orders if that again becomes a necessity.

Please see our latest message to our community, which is posted below: 

Dear Parents and Students, 

拝啓

Yesterday Hokkaido recorded 10 new cases of Covid-19, the first time in approximately a month. In these cases, the infection was spread among or from health-care and emergency service workers. 

昨日北海道は、新型コロナウイルスの感染者が新たに10人確認されたと発表しました。1日に感染者が10人に達するのはおよそ1ヶ月ぶりで、感染は医療関係者を経由して広がったとされています。 

As the cases are traceable, the concern level is not as high as if the sources of the infection were unknown. 

昨日発表の件に関しては、感染源が明らかであり、警戒レベルは感染源不明の場合ほど高くはありません。

しかし、立て続けに2桁の感染者数が何日間も続き、感染源が特定できないケースが増加傾向になれば、北海道が以前のようなより強いレベルの対策を再びとる可能性が出てくることが懸念されます。

Should we again see cases in double digits over a few days and if they become untraceable, we are advised that Hokkaido would consider a return to a stricter level of measures, as we experienced earlier.

We will watch the news carefully today and into the weekend and will report to families as necessary. 

HISは本日、そして週末にかけて報道を注視し、必要に応じて御父兄の皆様方に改めて連絡させて頂きます。

Sincerely,

どうぞよろしくお願い致します。

敬具

Barry Ratzliff. Head of School
