Madina Sumali, left, and her sister, Belania, participate in their online school classes on Zoom in their shared bedroom on Sept. 18. 2020 at their home in Rochester, N.Y. Madina and Belania, along with some of their other siblings, attend the Rochester City School District (RCSD) John Williams Public School #5. The RCSD announced in Aug. 2020 that they would not be reopening their schools, citing the COVID-19 pandemic as a major risk. This announcement came as a reversal to their original plan, released in July 2020, that the district would reopen schools in person. The RCSD provided each student with a “learning box” with notebooks and other materials needed, most notably a Chromebook computer for their online classes.
