School attendance legalities in pandemic times

Just wondering - are there any legal implications if parents do not send their kid to school due to pandemic reasons? I know there are some rules (and maybe legal too), but aren't the rules framed for non-pandemic peace times when attending school has no health hazard associated? What are the options now for parents who feel it is risky to send kid to school? Thanks so much in advance for guidance!

Don't think the legal situation has changed at all. If a child is missing for 20 days, the principal is obliged to make a report to Tusla, who investigate from there.
