Dubai’s KHDA clarifies about school closure on Sunday

Schools have been authorised to decide whether to suspend classes due to bad weather conditions

Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority has clarified that schools in the emirate will remain open unless they decide to suspend classes.

In two humorous messages on Twitter – including one referencing Game of Thrones on Sunday – the KHDA said students should head back to schools on Sunday.

The clarification comes after the UAE’s ministry of Education announced on Saturday night that some schools in the country may be closed on Sunday due to bad weather conditions.

Taking to Twitter, the ministry said that schools have been given the authority to decide whether or not to suspend classes on Sunday.

The UAE was hit by heavy rains accompanied by thunder and lightning on Saturday, leading to flooding in several roads.

A flash flood alert was also issued on Saturday, with parts of the country, such as Ras Al Khaimah, also witnessing hail.

According to the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM), the weather on Sunday will remain cloudy with chances of rainfall and thunder in parts of the country.

Heavy winds are also expected to cause blowing dust and sand, leading to poor visibility.

Cloud activity is expected reduce by evening, the NCM added.
