Summer term 2020

June 25, 2020.

Dear Current and New students and Their Guardians,
Dear Agencies,


Naganuma School has been holding classes on the internet for Spring term due to the spread of the COVID-19, a state of emergency, and Tokyo Alert. We would like to thank everyone for your understanding and cooperation which allowed us to make it successfully.

For three weeks or so since June 8, we have set a date for each class to come to school once a week, and operated staggered attendance with thorough precautions to avoid infectious diseases with students.

Now, based on the government’s policy that is trying to return to normal with appropriate precautions against infectious diseases, shops are gradually reopening, more people are commuting to work, and we can see the crowds are returning to the city center.

We have decided to hold classes for the summer term as follows. Although there is still some concern about infectious diseases, we will protect our learning environment with consideration for the safety of our students as our first priority. We would appreciate your continued understanding and support.
