How do you feel about going back to school?
How many of you have had discussions with parents or family about you returning to school? Were there safety measures you talked about like things you would look out for at school?
What about scheduling? Does it impact or change your parents schedules?
Who has younger siblings? How have you and your siblings arranged your home schooling setup?
Have you and your family been on the same page about the restrictions since the start? Do they involve you in decision making?
