Too Sick for School?

In the chaos of getting yourself ready for work and your child off to school, you notice your child seems a little warm. Do you keep them home for that?

Knowing when to keep your child home from school is sometimes difficult. If they’re not really sick, they miss school unnecessarily. If they are sick and you send them to school, they’re bounced between home and school when they really should be home getting rest.

As a general rule, if your child has any of the following, you should keep them home from school:




-A fever above 101

Sometimes your child exhibits these symptoms and then seems to recover quickly. So, what do you do? Trust your instinct. The vast majority of parents have good instincts when it comes to their child’s health. The best strategy is to relax and do what you think is best for your child.
