Smart Family cannot remove time restrictions

I set up time restrictions on my kids' phones to limit distractions while they were at school and during the night. Now I want to remove these time restrictions but I'm not able to. According to Verizon's instructions, you are supposed to tap the "remove" button on the bottom left of the time restrictions screens, but there is no such button. The only button is "save". If I uncheck all the days of the week, the "save" button goes inactive (so I can't save something that has no days selected).

My only option is to create a "fake" restriction for one hour in the middle of the night when it doesn't matter, but this isn't a great solution.

Similar to kapuku, I too can't remove a time restriction. When trying to remove the 'School' hours restriction, as my child is now on summer break, there is no 'Remove' button on the screen for setting the school hours. As per https://www.verizon.com/support/how-to-use-verizon-smart-family/ AND https://www.verizon.com/support/knowledge-base-152728/  there should be a 'Remove' button but there isn't. There IS 'Remove' button on the 'Night Hours' limit screen however.

My phone: Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G
Android Version: 11
Verizon Smart Family Version: 8.20 (rc27 b8175 6417ada2 20210512111323)

Edit: The 'School' restriction does NOT appear as an editable restriction when using the web version under my account. I am the account holder, and primary parent.

I also can't remove the time restrictions. It should be a very straightforward process, however, it will not let me remove all of the restrictions (I don't want any school restrictions during summer). If I try to remove all restrictions, the "save button" goes away.  Sometimes, there is a "remove"  button. But if I click "remove", and then go back into the "School Hours" then it has reset to all days 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.  this is creating a major problem
