Hello everyone! How was your summer? Did you get to do all the activities you were hoping to do this summer? Did you get a chance to enjoy the outdoors? I heard that Mark and Junko did some camping and had a great time. I spent quite a bit of time outside in my yard. My kids and I played in a big pool in our yard almost every day. One day, the kids were in the pool about 8 hours total. Kids sure love swimming, don’t they! I enjoyed it too. Even in the hot weather, a pool in the shade is quite cool. It definitely helped me beat the heat!
HI was expecting the Covid case numbers to go down during summer vacation. I was sad to see the numbers are still a bit high in Shimane. Thank you for your participation in our short questionnaires about online lessons. Your feedback really helps us in our decisions. As teachers, we prefer to teach face-to-face lessons of course, but we are also confident in our abilities to teach effectively online. We will continue to do our best to respond appropriately in this rather atypical situation.
For face-to-face classes, please remember to use hand sanitizer to clean your hands before and after class and to keep your mask on during class. And if you have been in close contact with a Covid-19 patient or if you have any Covid-19 symptoms, please refrain from coming to class. Thank you for all you have been doing to keep our students safe! We really do appreciate it!
I’m really looking forward to studying hard this fall! Have a terrific September!
