The state government has confirmed parents who take their children out of school during the coronavirus pandemic will not be fined.
Under normal circumstances, unauthorised absences from Tasmanian schools, following attempts at mediation, result in a fine of up to $1680 on a first offence and $2520 for subsequent offences.
However, this will be waived during the pandemic.
Education Minister Jeremy Rockliff said parent should advise schools in writing if their children will be absent.
"The Department of Education has been working for a number of weeks on developing a range of at home learning materials to assist children's learning should the current advice to keep schools open change," he said.
"This includes online material as well as activities that can be used without an internet connection, such as learning programs to support scheduled programming on ABC TV. In addition schools are sharing their resources for learning at home.
