How do schools handle it when a student is too sick for even homebound instruction? ?

if they are that sick, they don't have school. that is very rare and when temporary, they are helped to catch up when better. In some of the most severe disabilities, educational services would be limited to therapies: physical, occupational, speech (even if just communicating with eye gaze/gesture)....and often that would actually be through medical insurance. There would be attempts at stimulation and exposure to information.

Most districts are as flexible as necessary when a child's illness precludes education even at home or hospital.
Our district had a child in a coma for three years. When he recovered, he was re-enrolled, even though he was over the legal age by the time he graduated from high school.

Children who are hospitalized long-term receive education services provided through special teachers assigned by the school district or state. The services vary and would be individually designed for each student. Yes, there are academic expectations even for kids in long-term hospitalization, as long as they are capable of participating.
