Teaching Unions are calling on the Government to explain why schools will remain open if the country is moved to Level 5.
There are calls for a review to be carried out immediately on whether it's safe for children and staff to continue going to school.
TUI President Martin Marjoram says his members are seriously concerned.
Speaking to Midwest News today Ritchie Bell, the ASTI representative for Galway, Tuam and East Galway said the situation remains fluid, but he said that in his view, second level teachers, members of the ASTI, would reasonably expect government to take on NPHET advice.
He added that if schools are to remain open through higher level Covid Restrictions than teachers and students need to know what additional safety measures will be put in place by government to ensure that schools are a safe environment.
