My family is one among the millions trying to figure out how to keep their children’s educations on track in the fog of the pandemic.

I have three kids in three different schools. My sixth grade son has attended an independent school the last couple of years. He’s currently on a hybrid schedule: half the days at home, half at school. My high-school senior attends our in-boundary District of Columbia public school, and for him the pandemic has meant pure online instruction since March 2020, minimal social interaction, moderate dejection and none of the traditional milestones that kids his age usually look forward to. Most days he describes his mood as “zoomed out” and says he’s just counting down the days until the end of high school.
