Health Clinic Updates

Our preventative measures at school, and the increasing number of staff and families who have received the vaccine have had a positive impact on reducing the number of COVID19 cases in our community. This week, our health clinic was outfitted with our new isolation room. This room was constructed in accordance with a regulatory requirement for all schools in the Dubai. We are proud that we are one of the first schools in the UAE to have this space available if and when necessary. Thank you to our families for staying vigilant during this time and for those who have taken the vaccine. Our collective efforts are truly noticeable and we are pleased to see our COVID19 cases decline significantly in the recent days with no staff cases.
