In this context, some private schools in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi have announced that the spring break for all students in schools will start on March 26, 2022 and end on the next April 10, 2022, with the return on April 11.

According to the school calendar that was previously approved by the Department of Education and Knowledge, the last day of the second semester of this year will be on Friday, March 25, and the third semester will begin on Monday, April 11.

In a related context, schools have warned that returning in attendance to study during the third semester of this year will require all students to conduct a PCR examination with a negative result not exceeding 96 hours before returning.

For its part, the Department of Education and Knowledge announced a policy of reduced precautionary measures, as commitment to social distancing and wearing a “mask” became optional in outdoor spaces, with social distancing only being activated in classes.
