Dear Students,

The LUJ administration has decided to postpone holding in-person classes in the Fall
semester for at least two weeks in order to keep you safe. We are concerned about the high
rate of Covid 19 infections in Tokyo, the slow rate of vaccinations and the impact of
traveling.

This means the first two weeks of classes will be held online. We hope to move to in-person
classes the week of September 13. However, holding in-person classes will be contingent
upon the Covid-19 pandemic situation, so further postponements may occur.

The class schedule for the online classes will remain the same as proposed for the Fall
semester. This applies to both the undergraduate and EAP classes. If you are scheduled to be
in EAP in-person classes, your classes will still start at 11:00 am. and end at 3:55 p.m.

We will notify you each Monday about the current status of in-person classes, starting
September 6, until in-person classes commence. Please pay special attention to your e-mail
and the LUJ blog for updates. We are sorry we cannot be more definitive about the date for
the resumption of in-person classes.

Please try to stay safe and get a vaccine injection as soon as you can make an appointment, if
you have not already done so.

I am sorry to disappoint you if you had planned to start in-person classes in the first week of
the term, but we will offer live classes as soon as it is safe to do so.
Sincerely

Alan Brender
Dean
