Dubai Schools to Reopen in September - Coming Soon in UAE
24 June 2020

Dubai officials have confirmed that all learning institutions will restore operation in September.

Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) has updated that schools and universities will be allowed to reopen in September. Schools will be reopening in the new academic year with some new changes, which are prescribed in protocols.

KHDA issued specific health and safety rules for schools and universities that will operate from the start of the 2020/21 academic year.

New regulations for Dubai schools:
• Temperature checks of all students and staff before entry;
• Following social distance rules, including reducing the head-count capacity in classrooms;
• Ceased group activities, such as school assemblies, performances, and sports events;
• Strict schedule, including mealtimes, to avoid gatherings of students in one place;
• Regular sterilization of the classrooms, laboratories and other facilities;
• School must hire or appoint trained health and safety official;
• Maintenance crew don’t enter educational institutions during the working hours;
• School buses operate at 30 percent capacity, with temperatures check.

Also, the KHDA website says that each school will decide its preferred way of managing class sizes and physical distancing. There are several options for schools to choose:
– Full reopening to all students for classroom learning;
– Continuing distance e-learning on a part-time basis;
– Providing private lessons in scheduled “shifts”.
