At some point, we are going to have to accept the risks to society of COVID - much like we do many other things. No one wants anyone to die. But the human condition is such that there are going to be things that come along and get some of us. But we collectively weigh the cost / benefit of avoiding said risk. In the case of COVID, the costs of keeping kids out of school is going to cost our society immesurably for years to come. Online learning is not even close to an adequate substitute - even when carried out flawlessly (which it is not). We are punishing our children by not only retarding their educational progress, but by showing them the example of not fighting through something that is challenging, yes, but not something we can work through collectively.
