Students of public and private schools and universities and kindergartens in the State of Qatar will resume the distance learning system today, Sunday. This comes following the decision issued by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MOEHE) last Thursday to adopt the distance learning system and suspend the attendance of students in all universities and public and private schools and kindergartens in the State of Qatar. This is due to the current health conditions related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and the recent spike of COVID-19 infections in the community.

This decision comes following coordination with the Ministry of Public Health, and in accordance with the precautionary and preventive measures and procedures required by public interest. This decision is in order to protect the health of students and teaching and administrative staffs alike.

Administrative and educational school staffs will continue attending schools with 100% percent. All exams for all educational stages will take place physically in educational buildings, and measures that will be taken in this regard will be announced later on.
