I can answer this one. I have kids in college right now, at multiple universities. The answer is "not usually". Most college classes also have limits on numbers, just like your high school does, so...

Well, you said the child was sweet and respectful, but this behavior is neither of those. The child is being very disrespectful and rude to you. This is a teachable moment about the power of words...

You're right- if the conditions are not good enough to have in-person school, then they shouldn't be having groups of kids on buses and groups roaming the hallways.
