WVXU has covered the pandemic's impact on the Tri-State from the very beginning, when on March 3, 2020, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine barred spectators from attending the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus over concerns about the virus, even though Ohio had yet to confirm a single case of COVID-19.

Remote learning has returned to many local school districts. Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear has ordered public and private schools to close their classrooms starting Nov. 23 as COVID-19 cases continue to surge throughout the state. Cincinnati Public Schools superintendent also announced a return to remote learning on Nov. 23 as Ohio case totals rise.

So how are students and parents handling the news? And how have they been weathering this year with a combination of in-person and remote learning?

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the school year under a pandemic are Dater High School Senior Juanisha Gray and Walnut Hills High School parent Erin Upp.
