Abu Dhabi: E-learning to continue for three weeks starting January 17


The move is a precautionary measure to limit the spread of COVID-19

Schools in Abu Dhabi will continue online learning for a further three weeks, starting from 17 January.

The announcement comes from the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee, who said the move is due to a precautionary measure to limit the spread of Covid-19 and protect the health and safety of the schooling community.



The committee also urged parents, guardians and academic and administrative staff in all schools to vaccinate against Covid-19, to protect themselves against the virus and help develop comprehensive protection for the wider community, which will accelerate the safe return to schools.


It was only last week that the  Department of Education and Knowledge, Abu Dhabi’s private education regulator, “confirmed to The National that in-person lessons would resume after schools adopted distance learning for the first two weeks of the new term.”
