Thank you very much for your cooperation in taking measures against infectious diseases at our school. From May 2022, we will review our current infection control measures and operate as follows. We would like to ask for the continued understanding and cooperation of all parents and guardians in preventing the spread of infection.
- What to do if our students test positive for covid 19.
- Please refrain from attending the school if any of the following condition to you
- Precautions for All Schools
- Infectious Disease Control Guidelines for Knock Knock Preschool
- Infectious Disease Control Guidelines for Knock Knock English
In accordance with the new policy of the Setagaya Public Health Center, we will take the following actions from now on.
Until now, when there was an infected person in a class, the ward’s Child Care Department identified the person with whom the child had a close contact based on the standards of the Setagaya Public Health Center, but from now on, no such identification will be done.
As in the past, the Setagaya Ward Public Health Center will be responsible for identification of persons with concentrated contacts. We will follow the instructions of the public health center.
Due to the nationwide spread of the new coronavirus, we ask that students who are in the following categories refrain from attending school. If you are unable to make a decision on your own, please contact the head office.
All school staff are required to wear non-woven masks.
All guardians are required to wear masks.
All students are required to wear masks while commuting.
The temperature of all staff and students are measured and they are required to wash their hands upon entering all schools.
Classrooms are regularly disinfected several times a day in places that are frequently touched by students and teachers, including but not limited to toys, books, and handrails. The inside of the shuttle buses is also disinfected in between every student that uses it.
In order to keep the teaching spaces ventilated with fresh air, doors or windows are kept open during hours of use.
The carpet in the classrooms will be temporarily removed to allow for more efficient disinfection work in the school.
For our students’ interests, we actively encourage to pursue the process of third vaccination to all staff members.
Students in our Regular Class are not forced to wear masks, following the guidelines set for preschools in Setagaya Ward.
However, we encourage students to wear masks as much as possible.
If your child wears a mask from home, we make sure they are able to breathe comfortably at school. Additionally, if it is too uncomfortable for a child to wear a mask continuously, they are not forced to wear it. Furthermore, each child’s mask is separated individually as to prevent the spread of germs.
We use tables with plenty of space between students. In addition, partitions are used to further prevent the spread of germs between students.
After washing their hands, single-use paper towels are used in order to prevent the spread of germs.
After Kinder has stopped serving snacks during snack time, but will resume serving snacks on April, 2022.
Park activities will be suspended. We will do only activities in the yard of each school.
If you are concerned about the spread of infection due to proximity to others, an adjournment system is offered. In this system, a month’s recess is permitted and the tuition from that month can be carried over to the next month. Please note that this system is for one month and can only be used one time in the school year. For more information, please refer to the Terms and Conditions of the school.
If you are absent without using the Adjournment System, you will need to pay the childcare fee. For support outside the system provided by Knock Knock, please consult with your local ward office.
The following is not a policy, but we would appreciate your cooperation.
- When picking up or dropping off your child, please avoid close contact with other parents and maintain a social distance.
- When dropping off or picking up your child, please do not gather in the yard or on the street, and please return home as soon as possible.
We ask that all students at face-to-face classes wear masks during the duration of class. If you are unable to wear a mask due to health reasons, we request that you take an online class.
As part of measured enacted to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, we moved group lessons to online. Now, as we mitigate precautions, we have resumed in-person group lessons.
We use tables with plenty of space between students. In addition, depending on the space between students, partitions are used to prevent the proximity between students and the risk of spread of germs.
Snacks will be provided again during breaks in group lessons.
