KellyGram – The Back-to-School Quandary

 

 

As we rapidly approach the start of a new school year, the term back-to-school anxiety takes on a whole new meaning. With the pandemic still in full swing, navigating the practicalities of returning to school has become an enormously complicated balancing act, and while we can all agree that the right way to proceed is the one that’s in our kids’ best interests, there’s understandably much debate over how those interests are best served.

As a general rule, I prefer to keep the KellyGram apolitical, and today is no exception; I don’t pretend to have the answers to this quandary and suspect that there’s no “one-size-fits-all” solution. However, I will say this: I don’t envy the parents who are weighing the pros and cons of sending their kids back to school, and I am so grateful that my kids are grown up and I won’t have to face such a difficult choice. Nor do I envy the decision-makers tasked with finding a solution to such a high-stakes dilemma. Whether students engage in in-person, hybrid, or virtual learning is not for me to decide, but my prayers are with the teachers, students, faculty and, parents who must maneuver these difficult decisions in the coming weeks.

I pray that COVID-19 runs its course and that we can return to normalcy soon. In the meantime, let us have compassion for one another during these trying times and remember that we are all doing the best we can to carry on.

Sincerely,

 

Mike Kelly
