In our recent communication with you, we shared information about our preparations for reopening the school on August 30, 2020.
The KHDA is in constant communication with all schools in Dubai to ensure all requirements are met for a safe return of students and staff to the premises. Among these requirements is a recent request that all school staff do the COVID – 19 PCR test and obtain a negative result for each staff member before the school reopens.
Al Mawakeb Al Barsha staff have been scheduled by the Dubai Health Authority to do the test today Saturday, August 29, 2020. The expectation is to have the results for all staff within 24 to 48 hrs. This does not allow enough time for the school and its staff to report to work as expected on August 30, 2020. Consequently, the school administration has decided to postpone the reopening date until Wednesday, September 2, 2020.
We understand that many of our parents may have made different arrangements in preparation for the previously set date and we sincerely apologize for this short notice due and for any inconvenience it may have caused, this issue is outside our control.
We will continue to keep you posted of any news as soon as we receive it.
We are looking forward to welcoming our students back on Wednesday, September 2nd.
Till then, please stay safe.
