Fever or vomiting, home. Bad cough or loads of bodily fluids (snot) from the nose that is difficult to contain (unless I think it’s allergies), home. I am fortunate that I am able to work from home, and a lot of families don’t have that option without risking their jobs, so I feel a certain amount of responsibility to try to limit the germs my kid spreads.
I’m surprised by some of the hard and fast rules.
I’m chronically ill and have always been that way. There have been times in my life where I was vomiting every morning for months at a time. It was constantly a balance between my health and not missing too much at school. I had to be away from school for a few weeks due to allergies.
My mom always used to say, “Unless you’re dying, you’re going to school!” Puking, fever, and all. I hated this obviously. School is not fun when your nose is running like a waterfall, when you are coughing up your lungs, etc.
Is there any way to get their homework from school for them to do that day/night? That’s what my mom usually did on the rare occasions I did have sick days, so I wouldn’t get behind.
The topic ‘What is your line for sending them to school or staying home sick?’ is closed to new replies.
