The Ministry of Education and Higher Education tweeted on 31 December 2021, that it has decided to adopt distance learning for all students in public and private schools including kindergartens for one week starting from Sunday, January 2, 2022.

As part of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education's mission to provide a safe school environment and considering the recent remarkable increase in the number of Covid-19 cases, it has been decided to adopt "Distance Learning" for a period of one week only starting Sunday January 2nd - 2022. Accordingly, attendance of all students is suspended in all public and private schools and kindergartens in the country.
This decision comes in coordination with the Ministry of Public Health, and in accordance with the precautionary and preventive measures required for the public interest.
This also accounts for the safety of students, teaching and administrative staff, and to facilitate the examination procedures for the Coronavirus. In this context, it has been decided that the administrative and educational staff would continue to attend schools and kindergartens.
The Ministry of Education and Higher Education calls on parents to cooperate and ensure that their sons and daughters attend the distance learning lessons. This helps preserve their own and the community's health and safety and prevent the spread of the pandemic.
