BBC is reporting that some schools may have to open over the Easter holidays to look after the children of key workers.
That is according to updated guidance from the Department of Education (DE).
The department also said that one “hub” school in an area could take pupils from a number of other schools if local agreements were reached.
Education Minister Peter Weir had previously asked parents only to send their child to school as a “last resort”.
Mr Weir said the updated guidance was in response to queries received by the department, including whether schools would be expected to open at weekends or over the Easter holidays.
