Parents, Learning Model

The authorities have required parents of private school students in Abu Dhabi to finalize their kids’ learning model before classes begin in September and stick to the model they chose until the end of the semester.

Though some private schools recommended face to face lessons, they said parents would need to take the final call about the health safety of their children. This is to avoid any disruption to educational programmes. The only reason in which absence from school would be allowed are as follows: illness; death of a close family member; registered medical appointments; an official duty to serve the community; mandatory appearance before the authorities; and travelling with the family for emergency reasons, such as medical treatment or death of a family member.
