“Back to school” means something very different this year…

It’s time to send the kids back to school…or not. Parents are facing a tough choice in this first September following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The decisions that need to be made are wrenching – should I send them or should I keep them at home?, many wonder.
