Good news for parents and kids across Dubai today as it’s been confirmed that schools will reopen in September for the start of the new academic year.
The announcement was made by The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) via Twitter.
The KHDA confirmed there would be changes to the daily school routine once schools in Dubai reopen.
Pupils, students and teachers can expect to have their temperature taken at the entrance. And there are likely to be checks on food halls with precautions in place.
Headteachers will have to introduce temperature screening for all pupils and staff when they enter the school. Schools will also be regularly disinfected and classes could be staggered to maintain social distancing measures. Teachers and pupils will also have to maintain the appropriate social distance between each other.
Schools will also have to appoint a trained health and safety official.
