Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (Adek) has announced the Eid break for private and Charter Schools students across Abu Dhabi.

“Schools will be closed on Monday, May 2-6, and reopen the following week, on Monday, May 9,” Adek said in a statement.

Students would enjoy a 9-day long holiday, including the weekends, and classes would resume from Monday, May 9.

“All students must be free of any Covid-19-related symptoms and maintain their Green status on Al Hosn app in accordance with their age category.”

Eid Al Fitr is marked on the first day of Shawwal - the month that comes after Ramadan in the Hijri calendar. This year, the Islamic festival is expected to fall on May 2, as per astronomical calculations.

According to the official UAE holidays list, residents will have Eid Al Fitr holidays from Ramadan 29 to Shawwal 3.

The UAE moon-sighting committee will convene to confirm the official starting date for Eid.
