So here's my take: Maybe right after the Man of Steel episode, I guess John Henry was in lock-up for 6 months before he was questioned?Finally getting around to Superman & Lois and yeah I think it's meant to be towards the end of Summer 2021. Sarah's coming back from camp (makes sense it would be a Summer camp) when she's picked up from the bus station and I assume Natalie's first day of school is meant to be the first day of the school year. Johnathan's seen practicing Football (which would be for the Fall 2021 season) and him breaking his arm is referred to as being "last year". It also looks like Smallville High hasn't started their school year yet.
Right now I'm thinking it's Late August 2021, which means the back part of S1 would need to be moved to May 2021, maybe getting away with the 3 weeks before the jump being April 2021. I really don't see a way to stretch the season that far but we have to work with what they give us. It's clear they intended for the show to be set near when it was filmed, while at the same time not making the necessary jumps to have it all fit. At least the weather would match more now.
