"We will not push them too hard on their studies", he said, adding that extra tutoring will be given to allow the boys to catch up on their missed work.
Narongsak quipped: "If the God of Rain has mercy for us, we may be able to finish it fast".
Thailand's Meteorological Department said there was a 60 per cent chance of rain with more thunderstorms forecast throughout the week.
Narongsak Osottanakorn, the head of the rescue operation, told reporters on Monday: "The four children are fine".
"Anyone that has had contact with the boys, including their close family, will be closely monitored to make sure they are disease free".
Extracting everyone from the cave could take up four days, but Sunday's success raised hopes that could be done.
The boys are said to be generally in good health but doctors are still evaluating whether they could have picked up any unsafe infections, such as the potentially lethal leptospirosis, while inside the damp cave for two weeks.
According to the Associated Press, a Thai official revealed that the healthiest boys were taken out of the cave first.
Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha was scheduled to visit the site later Monday, after first traveling south to Phuket, where a boat capsizing resulted in 42 deaths, mostly tourists from China. On Sunday, the first four boys were rescued and were taken to a hospital in Chiang Rai for evaluation. Thai Navy SEALs and global cave diving experts brought out four boys Sunday, and the operation is continuing today.
Each boy is being accompanied by two divers through the dark and complex cave system. That time, however, was later than the ongoing rescue mission was expected to last.

Thirteen global divers and five Thai Navy SEALs are involved in the operation.
The rescue of the first four boys - whose soccer team is known as the Wild Boars - brought cheers and optimism on Sunday, bolstering hopes that more of the boys can survive a complicated and hours-long process that includes the use of multiple divers and a system of air tanks stashed along the escape route.
Monsoon flooding cut off their escape route and prevented rescuers from finding them for nearly 10 days.
