More than 220 state schools in Queensland will remain closed for the beginning of the new school year on Tuesday.
Annette Whitehead, Director-General of the Department of Education, says independent schools will notify parents of any special arrangements because of the floods.
Parents with children at early learning centres should contact their service, she said.
A total of 125 schools will remain closed in the North Coast zone which covers an area from Bundaberg, south to Redcliffe.
In the Brisbane metropolitan area 50 will be closed as will 26 on the Darling Downs, 13 in Central Queensland and nine in the South East - most of those on the Gold Coast.
