The Minister of Education, Tayseer Al-Nuaimi announced that students will return to school during the second semester on 7 Feb 2021.

School attendance will be on an alternative day basis (such as two days of school, and three days off, or two days off, two days on, and two days off) depending on the class density, he said, addi ng that students in classrooms should be at least two square meters apart.

The maximum capacity of the classroom will be 15-20 students per class.

Al-Nuaimi added that education will be blended, so that students can follow their work remotely while they are not in school.

There are considerations to extend the second semester until the end of next June, in order to give the students and teachers more space to cover the basic concepts of subjects and outcomes of the two semesters, and to ensure the students have caught up on their education, he said.

There are two temporary assessment stations of the extent of adherence to the health protocol in schools, said Al-Nuaimi, adding that the pandemic situation will play a large factor in these stations. After two weeks there will be another assessment station, which will determine the enrollment of students from grades four to nine in face education.

The evaluation will be daily for a period of two weeks. If commitment is proven and the epidemiological situation permits, students of the tenth and eleventh grades will enroll after two weeks in face education, on Feb. 21.
