DISTANCE LEARNING

The latest guidance to all schools from the KHDA states that “From here on in we want distance learning to be provided only for the eligible categories.”

In line with this directive, please be advised that we will continue to provide Distance Learning (DL) to eligible students only, i.e.,

  • a confirmed COVID-19 positive case, or

  • a confirmed Close Contact to a positive case,

  • a student with a DHA medical exemption

 

The DL provision is no longer available for students absent for any other reason. 

 

Important note: If your child is unwell and is displaying any COVID-19 related symptoms, you must NOT send them to school and follow the standard JAS absence procedure by notifying the school via email to absence@jebelalischool.org
