Guidelines ,Schools

Sharjah Private Education Authority has issued extensive guidelines to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 during the new academic year. Based on these guidelines, private schools in Sharjah must close and shift to distance learning temporarily if two or more cases are detected among students or education staff.

Staff and parents are obligated to inform the school if positive cases are detected. The capacity of school buses has been increased to 75 per cent, and schools must use stickers on bus seats to ensure physical distancing in line with guidelines.
