Do you tell the teacher he or she is actually just fine and it was _____ that caused it?
This has happened to me twice as a 'teacher'. Today a little boy (4) threw up right after lunch and felt like crap. Laid straight down and went to sleep which is not normal for him. His mom gets there and ask me what he had for lunch. Then tells me he is not sick- it was the peaches. He doesn't like those and he had eaten half of them.... (I am thinking Lady, we have peaches 3 times a week and he always eats them) Insisting he is fine she takes him home and says see you tomorrow. (Policy will not allow him to return tomorrow either way)
Last time a little girl (2) threw up twice after snack and it was NOT a little bit... She was dancing and singing when her dad picked her up and hour later. He insisted she was fine and it must have been 'too much juice' He made a huge fuss about it. Found out later she barfed int he car on the way home. I admit I smiled about it.
Is this just normal? Your kid gets sick at school but you insist they are Not actually sick like we have no idea what we are talking about? lol. Dude. I know sick when I see it.

Oh, DS's gagging would result in full on barfing. Not just a little spit up, it was projectile and significant, which is why the school called (because it got on his clothing and seemed like a lot). He had no other symptoms though and had not been sick or displaying other symptoms before that unlike the child in your situation.
In my case, I asked DS if he was feeling well and if he wanted to come home with me and he didn't want to miss class, the nurse gave the green light for him to stay since he didn't have any other symptoms. If I felt he wasn't feeling well or was coming down with something I would have taken him home, just as I would want any of his other classmate's parents to do if their child might be sick.

Policy says if they throw up they have to go home and be out for 24 hours.
^^^Then this is what should apply. Also, the fact that she was gone for three days would work against her being a-o-k to continue the day. If the school had told me that I had to take him home I wouldn't have argued. I figured he would have wanted to come home because he was embarrassed that he threw up in front of his peers. I was frankly a little shocked that he wanted to stay.
I would just tell the parents that it is about the health of all of the other children in your care as well as for their daughter to be able to get better before returning.
