Ministry gives mandate to only those schools in areas adversely affected by rain.
The Ministry of Education has allowed schools to dismiss classes and close for the day if the weather poses a danger, particularly during heavy rains.
Students, administrative and teaching staffs can leave early to avoid getting stuck on flooded roads and valleys.
According to Al Bayan, Fawzia Gharib, Assistant Undersecretary for the School Operations Sector, said that only schools located in areas that are affected by adverse weather conditions have the mandate to issues such emergency leave.
"Such decisions give schools flexibility to deal with students' absences or late attendance records - impacted by the weather."
She added that schools had called it off in Fujairah during the recent heavy showers, to ensure everyone's safety.
The ministry had made a similar announcement in 2019 after heavy downpour in UAE.
