Do you keep your kid home after this?

My son threw up 2-3 times. He since feels better and has been able to keep down crackers, soup, and apple sauce. Im keeping him home tomorrow. Would you keep your kid home even if they are feeling better?

  • I would keep my child home. At DDs school they have to be a full 24 hours fever, vomit, or diarrea free before they can go back. I think thats when they are the most contagious and more likely to release their fluids on others.
    Keep him home to rest. For his sake, and for the health of everyone else.

  • Our school policy is puke, diarrhea, and/or fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.
