Education Department Deputy Secretary Andrew Finch today said both Collinsvale and Molesworth primary schools would re-open as normal tomorrow, Tuesday 12 February.
Mr Finch said both schools had been forced to close on Thursday and Friday of last week due to bushfires.
“The Department has assessed the situation in close consultation with the Tasmania Fire Service, and are now able to re-open the schools.”
Mr Finch said school bus services would also be operating as usual.
“On behalf of the Department, I would like to thank parents, students and all staff for their cooperation and patience during the closures,” Mr Finch said.
