The UAE News web report: Students of all academic levels in Abu Dhabi will continue distance learning for three more weeks from January 17, the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee has announced.
The students were set to return to campuses on January 17, but the Ministry of Education (MoE) has decided to postpone the resumption of in-class lessons.
This is a “precautionary measure to limit the spread of Covid-19 and protect the health and safety of the schooling community,” the committee said.
It urged parents, guardians and academic and administrative staff in all schools to get the Covid vaccine. This is to “protect themselves against the virus and help develop comprehensive protection for the wider community, which will accelerate the safe return to schools”.
Meanwhile, UAE public school students in Grades 9 to 12 — referred to as Cycle 3 pupils — will continue with distance learning “until further notice”.
The decision was taken to prevent the spread of Covid-19, amid the spike in new cases since the beginning of January.
