The gradual and phased return of on-site learning for all academic levels in public schools across the country will begin from February 14, 2021, until the end of the academic year, the UAE’s Ministry of Education has announced.

It said that over the last few weeks it has worked to review and evaluate the existing precautionary measures followed in schools, and update them according to the requirements of the health situation.

It confirmed that hybrid education will continue to be offered at these public schools as an option until the end of the academic year.

Meanwhile, Abu Dhabi’s Emergency Crisis and Disaster Committee took to Twitter on Wednesday morning confirming that in-classroom education would resume for all grades and schools starting February 14.

It did not restrict the directive to public schools in the emirate and hence private schools too are supposedly covered under this decision. It added that e-learning will continue to remain an option for students in Abu Dhabi schools until the end of the current academic year.

It added that the safety of schooling community remains a top priority for the committee and 60 per cent of educators and school staff in the emirate have received the first dose of the Covid-19 jab as part of the ongoing national vaccination campaign.

In December, officials in Abu Dhabi stated that all school students in the capital emirate will have remote learning for the first two weeks of the new term, starting January 3.
