Kanye West’s school has reportedly reopened hours after parents were told it was closing immediately.

Donda Academy – a private school in California named after the late mother of rapper Donda West – was closed for the rest of the year in an email from principal Jason Angel on Wednesday (26.10.22), who said the decision was made “at our discretion founder” amid plans to reopen in September 2023.

however, TMZ.com reports that a second email was sent to parents late Wednesday (10/26/22) announcing that school would be open as usual the following day. The website reports that the email reads: “Join us tomorrow morning in worship for the return of Dondo Academy. With the help of our parents and community, we are back and we are coming back with a vengeance! … The children of Dondo are going to change the world. We apologize for late letter! See you soon!”

The site reports that the second email came four hours after the closure was announced.

The school opened in August 2021 and reportedly costs about $15,000 a year for students. Rolling Stone magazine previously reported that Dondo Academy has about 100 students, whose classes reportedly include choral singing and parkour.

The “Stronger” star, 45, has been embroiled in controversy in recent weeks after posting anti-Semitic messages on social media and promoting “White Lives Matter” T-shirts during Paris Fashion Week in France.

He has since lost a string of lucrative commercial deals with the likes of Adidas, Balenciaga and the Gap, who cut ties with the hip-hop star.

The New York Times also reported that amid the ongoing furore, Dondo Academy was kicked out of a number of high school basketball tournaments, including the Play-By-Play Classic in Kentucky and the Hoophall Classic in Massachusetts.
