About Hokkaido International School


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. 

With the closure of public schools in Sapporo, HIS returned to online learning from April 13. This was followed by Hokkaido joining the national state of emergency from the 18th of April and the school building has remained closed since. 

Although the first stage of emergency measures aimed to reopen schools from May 7th, recent messages from the government and from the Board of Education indicate an extension for school closures. 

We will continue to monitor the situation and keep our community informed. Please also refer to the article in the Husky Express newsletter (to the right of this column), which also details decisions on school building closures. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact the school office. 

Sincerely yours,

Barry Ratzliff
Head of School

Due to these uncertain times regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to cancel our scheduled Summer School for this Summer, 2020. This was truly a difficult decision. We think it is the right one to make at this time.  Things are just too unpredictable at the time of this writing. I am very sorry about this cancellation.
