Private schools in Dubai will open ‘as usual’ next week – KHDA

Abu Dhabi earlier announced that all school students in the emirate will have remote learning for the first two weeks of the new term

Private schools in Dubai will open “as usual” next week at the start of the new school term, regulator Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) confirmed on Wednesday.

“Private schools in Dubai are not affected by the recent announcement and will be open as ‘usual’ next week,” it said in a brief message on Twitter.

“As with the first term of this academic year, parents continue to have the choice of face-to-face or distance learning for their children,” it added.

The clarification came after Abu Dhabi announced on Wednesday that all pupils in the emirate will have remote learning for the first two weeks of the new term that begins on January 3, 2021.

The decision applies to all students at both public and private schools in the emirate.

The UAE Ministry of Education also said on Tuesday that all public schools in the country would offer online learning for the first two weeks of the new term.
