Most schools in Barsha South and Sports City areas have informed their parents of traffic and other provisions they have made for the Indian Pakistan One Day International match.

Victory Heights Primary School, which is based in Sports City sent out an email to parents earlier this morning that they can pick up their children today if they wish to between 12 to 12.30. The letter stated:

“Due to the cricket match today,  if you wish to pick up your child early - please do so from 12:00 to 12:30. Please notify via email the class teacher and Reception on [email protected] Pick up will be from the classroom and Gate 2, 4 and 6 will be open. Bus children will be re routed and leaving at the normal time.”

Nord Anglia International School Dubai has informed the parents of the situation, asking them to allow extra time for pick up.

Barsha South based school, Global Indian International School has made no extra provisions but said it is aware of the extra time it could take for kids on the bus to reach home. Mr Ramesh Mudgal, Principal of GIIS Dubai, told

 “Our school closes at 2.50pm, we think the sports city area and International city  could be challenging areas. However, our nannies on the buses are well equipped to contact the parents and give them accurate feedback. Secondly, all our buses have an active GPS system connected to a mobile app, that will allow parents to get real time information on the bus whereabouts.”

Parents picking up their children should also check on Google Maps and Waze to ascertain the time it will take to pick the students from school. Expect to start early. Also check with your school if any special provisions have been made for pickups or a different gate is being used to avoid traffic, and consider using alternate routes like Emirates Road or Al Khail. Again, Google Maps and Waze will provide help here.
