Coronavirus in UAE: Distance learning extended for all Abu Dhabi schools
This is a precautionary measure to limit the spread of Covid-19 and to protect the schooling community.
Students of all academic levels in the UAE Capital will continue distance learning for three more weeks from January 17, the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee has announced.
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”.

Students in the Capital were set to return to campus on January 17 after two weeks of distance learning in the new term.
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 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.
The decision was taken to prevent the spread of Covid-19, amid the spike in new cases since the beginning of January.
