Kings’ Al Barsha Acts Swiftly, Moves to Online Learning, Following Confirmed Covid Cases
Kings’ School Al Al Barsha has moved swiftly to ensure the safety of its students and implemented distance learning for a number of year groups, following confirmed Covid-19 cases “in the wider school community”.
Following an evaluation by both the KHDA and the Dubai Health Authority, the school moved to distance learning on Sunday 25th October, for a period of three days.
The directive directly affects year groups FS2, Year 5, and Years 8-12.
However, as part of the KHDA, DHA directive, teachers for these year groups also need to work remotely for the period, which has meant the school temporarily closing the section for all secondary year groups.
“In the secondary school, the number of staff required to be off site as part of this directive renders the teaching and physical safeguarding of the remaining secondary year groups on-site non-viable. Therefore all secondary students from Year 7 to Year 13 will move to online learning.”
Kings will return to normal face to face operations, for all year groups, on Wednesday 28th October.
