Highland Council says work is ongoing to make arrangements to provide childcare to key workers, such as health service employees.
Like the rest of Scotland, all schools in the Highland area are closed.
Schools have been in touch with parents about arrangements to provide lessons via online "classrooms" and school blogs.
The council said it was preparing for the need to teach and care for key workers.
A spokesman said: "We have been seeking key workers to register over the weekend and details will be publicised shortly.”
