New school term is about to start in Abu Dhabi from the 3rd of January, 2021. The Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee along the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge, have announced that the learning will be remote for the first two weeks of the new school term.
This announcement is for all teachers and students of all private and public schools in the emirate. The decision was very hard to make but was taken only to ‘protect the health and safety of students, teachers and school staff’.
