Abu Dhabi schools have been given the green light to resume in-classroom learning for the start of the 2020/21 academic year.

All students, teachers and administrative staff at Abu Dhabi private schools must undergo Covid-19 tests before returning to campus for the new academic year in September.

The Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (Adek) confirmed the requirement to Khaleej Times.

A document detailing guidelines for reopening sent to all schools says: “All staff and students in Abu Dhabi must undergo Covid-19 testing prior to being authorised to return to the school premises. Details concerning coverage, schedules, and process will be announced at a later time in conjunction with relevant authorities.

“All staff, parents and students with devices are required to download the AlHosn app to facilitate contact tracing in case of an incident. All staff and students must declare recent travel history.”

Earlier today, the Adek said schools have been given the green light to resume in-classroom learning for the start of the academic year 2020/21.

The document said masks are mandatory for students aged over 12 years and anyone entering the school premises. “Masks may only be removed during lunch, provided strict social distancing is maintained. A desk shield is recommended as an additional precautionary measure,” the document said.
