The announcement from the Ministry follows the phased re-opening of schools across the UAE this year with many private schools offering a mix of options or ‘blended’ learning.
In an announcement on social media on Wednesday, the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee also clarified that the resumption of in-class learning has been approved for students in all grades starting from February 14. It added that e-learning will remain an option until the end of school year.
The announcement follows four weeks of mandatory distance learning, starting on January 3, for all Abu Dhabi students. During this period, authorities have worked to test school staff and educators for COVID-19. The vaccination process for the education sector has also begun in earnest.
