August is here, which means that the new school year is beginning for our patients and our own children. While this is a joyful time, it is also a time of stress for pediatricians professionally, and doubly so for the many pediatrician parents, grandparents, and other caregivers in our chapter. While COVID-19 cases have been increasing nationally for the past few weeks, the situation overall is much better than it was at the peak. We are fortunate that schools will be able to resume in-person with fewer restrictions than were needed previously.
