If you are a parent of a child in K-8, education gaps are real
Make sure your children are sufficiently educated during Covid schooling.
If you are a parent of students in early high school, the same education gaps must be addressed and now those grades will matter for cumulative GPA despite Covid.
If you are a parent of students in latter high school, the end of high school is approaching regardless of Covid. Figuring out where to apply to college, taking SATs, getting good grades, and applying to college will all be the relatively the same.
