Bahrain private schools can now decide whether to have online or offline classes


Private schools in Bahrain can now decide on their own with regard to offline classes in consultation with the parents. Parents have a choice to send their children to schools or receive online education.

Schools can set their own policy regarding the return to regular attendance education system, specifying the number of school days for students whose parents support offline classes. They can apply their own internal systems to strike a balance between offline and online classes.

The schools can also conduct studies and tests, both online and offline, except internal exams, where the students have to be physically present.

A rapid antigen test should be done if any student develops symptoms at school after informing his/her parents. If the guardian refuses for Covid test, the student must be isolated until the guardian comes to take him/her home.
