Individual schools will be responsible for making any decisions on uniform policies for the new academic year.
The Department of Education says the Health Protection Surveillance Centre has not issued any specific advice in relation to students wearing uniforms.
There had been concerns that they would have had to be washed each day due to Covid-19.
In a statement, The Department of Education says "The HPSC has not issued public health advice regarding the wearing of school uniforms. Therefore current policy on the wearing of school uniforms remains unchanged.
Decisions regarding the wearing of school uniforms remain a matter for the board of management of each individual school."
Aileen Hickey, chief executive of Parentline, says they're handling a huge volume of calls from parents who are concerned about sending their children back to school:
"We've been getting a huge amount of calls, another spike in the last 3-4 weeks. The vast majority of parents calling us think it is important for their kids to return to schools but they're still really worried about the risk of them contracting covid-19 and passing it to family members, particularly vulnerable family members."
