This summer wasn't a very typical summer, was it! I can't remember a summer vacation in Shimane with so much rain. Usually, I set up a pool in the yard for my kids and play outside with them every day. But this summer, because of the rain we had to improvise quite a bit. I decided to buy a bunch of used Legos. We spent hours and hours building with Legos. When I was a child, I used to play with Legos all day, every day. It was quite nostalgic for me to play with my kids with Legos this year.
Before summer vacation, a taxi driver called the school to tell us about a child that had run in front of his car. He said he almost hit the child. The street in front of the school has a lot of traffic and there are many cars passing by at high speeds, so we'd like to ask everyone to please watch young children closely. Please remind your children to look before crossing the street.
With the number of Covid-19 cases picking up, please remember to use hand sanitizer to clean your hands before and after class. Please keep your mask on during class. And if you or a family member has been in close contact with a Covid-19 patient, please refrain from coming to class for the standard quarantine period (2 weeks). Thank you for all you have done so far to keep our students safe! We appreciate it!
I'm looking forward to fall weather and getting back to some serious study! Have a wonderful September!
