Schools on the NSW side of the border are implementing online teaching methods to see students through until the school holidays on April 9.
In line with state government advice, Trinity Anglican College has remained open while encouraging students to stay home where possible.
Principal Justin Beckett said students were already familiar with an online learning platform called SEQTA, which would enable teaching to go online.
"The technology is already in place ... we're broadening that, so students in our junior school are able to access online learning," he said.
"Our senior school students already have their own device.
"At-home learning we've got for younger kids is different, it's delivered with more parental involvement and they'll have more free time in the day."
There were no details publicised yesterday of a NSW Education Standards Authority meeting on HSC, but Mr Beckett was confident his senior students would adapt to any changes in the exams.
"I think our year 12s are confident, they know that the tools work, they're used to the online learning platform, and they know their teachers are dedicated. I think they're feeling optimistic," he said.
James Fallon principal Jenny Parrett said in a Facebook post years 7 to 10 would have a co-ordinated approach to their learning that seeks to provide some flexibility and home resource tasks.
"If it is achievable, please keep your young people at home," she said.
"No child will be denied school, and no child staying at home will be disadvantaged, either.
"I am thinking of every one of us as we go into uncertain times."
At Holy Spirit School attendance sat at around 60 per cent yesterday.
An online portal was launched on Monday night and principal Matt Kean said this would ideally "mirror" teaching in the classroom.
"Our online platform is something we've put together very quickly, so it will evolve, and we're asking parents to be patient with us," he said.

"Essentially we are going online, and we're also having packs for those students and parents that don't have access to online.
"We're still open; we're not going to turn any students away.
"This will get us through the next two-and-a-half weeks, and we'll re-evaluate after that."
