Private schools in Sharjah will return to full-time in-person learning on October 31.

The announcement was made by the Sharjah Private Education Authority (SPEA) in coordination with the emirate's Crisis and Emergency Committee.

It takes into account the overall decline in COVD-19 cases and the high rate of vaccination in educational institutions. 

The return will be gradual with Sunday, October 31 being the deadline for students to return to full-time face-to-face learning.
