Children have been urged to attend school next week despite the possible impact of escalated industrial action by the teachers' union.
The Tasmanian Association of State School Organisations president Nigel Jones said he does not recommend children be kept home from school.
"They need to be at school and they need to be engaged with the curriculum," he said.
The Australian Education Union announced on Wednesday it will be holding stop work meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday which are likely to result in schools closing early or starting late.
Education Minister Jeremy Rockliff said the Department of Education will assess the impact of the industrial action and what actions need to be taken to ensure a duty of care for students, with parents to be informed of these arrangements by their school on Friday.
Mr Jones said preliminary discussions with Metro Tasmania indicated the bus provider would not be changing their schedules to accommodate the stop work action.
"That is going to inconvenience a lot of parents," he said.
"They need to check the bus schedules with their local transport provider to make sure that they get their kids to school.
"Parents need to be in tune with their school, to newsletters that may be coming home from Friday."
Mr Jones said the closing of schools has wide reaching impacts.
"Anytime away from school is going to add pressure on students in catch-up and teachers in catch-up," Mr Jones said.
"Parents may, for example, have to take half the morning off work if they work in small business. If they don't have leave up their sleeve they loose half a day's pay.
"There's a whole bunch of roll-on effects that happen."
Tasmanian Principals Association president Sally Milbourne said all educators involved in the industrial action will be considering students and their needs during the action.
"I know everyone involved will be carefully considering what their duty of care is to the students in their community and will be making actions around that to ensure that is the first consideration that they will be undertaking," Ms Milbourne said.
"That will be very important to maintain."
Ms Milbourne said the industrial action is part of a long campaign.
"It's part of a staged industrial set of actions to get the results that (the union) wants," she said.
Mr Jones said the AEU and the government need to continue negotiating until they reach common ground.
"The union and the government will be meeting with the Premier on Friday for further negotiations," he said.
"Let's hope than an outcome can come out of that so that this strike action can be called off.
"It all comes down to how much money is in the kitty and what can be affordable."
