I have 2 grandchildren in different school systems—my granddaughter in 2nd grade in a suburban school that meets 4 days in person and 1 [day] online is doing very well. My grandson that goes to a Pittsburgh public school has been virtual since 9/20. He’s having a very hard time keeping up & is doing very poorly. He wants to do better & feels he would if his classes were in person. He’s in 11th grade.
