Back to School is around the corner. But Back to School 2021 in the midst of a looming 4th wave during the Global Pandemic brings a new unprecedented set of worries and anxieties for parents, teachers and students. The large boogey man in the room is the COVID-19 Delta variant which is more transmissible than it’s predecessors.

You can keep the kids at home and continue with online learning at the risk of isolating kids, hurting not only their education but also their mental health.
Or, you can send the kids back to school and hope for the best.
