This chart should show the ages of the fatalities. An under reported fact is that seasonal flu is more deadly to school age children. Funny how the ones who claim that we need to follow the science try to hide the evidence that is needed to apply scientific logic.
What is the death age breakout?
The head of the CDC stated that the odds of a school age child dying from covid is 1 in a million. Flu is 5 to 10 times as deadly. Also the health consequences to school children are worse by not opening. Also, most developed nations are opening their schools.

But farmerjohn, if the school age child is being raised by elderly grandparents or lives in a household with persons with chronic illness, that child's minor illness may constitute a death sentence for his guardian or his diabetic, asthmatic teacher.

That is why families need flexibility. If a child is living with elderly grandparents then they would probably be able to support the online instruction with personal attention. If the family needs the parents to work during the daytime then they should have the option of sending their student to a private school that they believe will provide a safe learning environment. The government should provide those funds as an option that serves the family needs.
The public schools are demanding increased funding while demanding the right to stay at home. Some of the other demands are too crazy for anyone to take seriously. Also, don't forget that many countries have resumed regular in person learning and evidence suggests that young students aren't even a risk for transmission.
