In light of the current COVID-19 global crisis, Arcadia School has taken a range of proactive decisions to ensure the safety and health of its whole community in line with regulatory guidance from the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), Dubai Municipality (DM) and the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA). The following information provides guidance for parents and other community members on the school’s responses. This page will continue to be updated regularly.
The school is providing a full online learning curriculum for students who have family members who have compromised immunity or are at high risk, to ensure coverage of curriculum objectives is achieved for all age groups. Class teachers and specialist teachers are providing remote learning through the school’s online systems as follows:
Live, interactive opportunities are provided for specific age groups, for identified classes and for assemblies, whenever appropriate, through the use of Zoom technology. This is utilised under strict safeguarding guidelines and these are also shared with parents. In support of minimising virus transmission risk, the school will be limiting stocks of paper, stationery or hard copy materials to students.
Ipads are provided to Years 1 and 2 students on a loan basis to support online learning from home. Parents are required to sign a contract for provision of this equipment.
Further to the announcement from Arcadia's Chairman, Mohan Valrani, on Arcadia social media platforms, we now share the "Parent Care Package" instigated by your comments and requests at the recent 'Town Hall' meeting and approved by the Arcadia board.Click here
