Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,

Thank you for supporting the school’s online learning environment for your child or yourself.

In our August 11, 2020 communication to you, we stated that in December we would decide whether we could move to in-class instruction beginning in January or continue with the online learning. Based on the current rising COVID-19 cases, the Board of Directors has decided (ahead of schedule) that we will continue with online learning through to the end of the school year in June. The safety of the students and staff members is our priority, and we feel this decision best reduces the risk of spreading COVID-19 among our school community, while still being able to provide our school’s programming for our students.

We appreciate your patience and support as we continue to navigate together the challenges that come with the pandemic. Please feel free to direct any questions you may have to our principal Tomoko Suzuki at

*Parents: Please note that details regarding homework/handout pick-up will be emailed to you by the school and your child’s teacher in December.
