The Sharjah Private Education Authority (SPEA) announced on Tuesday that all private school students will continue with remote learning for the first two weeks of the 2020/2021 academic year.

"The Local Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority of Sharjah [and] the Sharjah Private Education Authority have decided on the distance learning mode for the first two weeks of 2020/2021 academic year," the caption stated.

Authorities added that the Covid-19 outbreak and back-to-school situation is being continuously monitored and they will keep sharing updates.

Although Sharjah private schools are resuming distance learning in the first term, the measures and rules taken for returning to the classroom varies in each emirate.
