I read a lot of times that if your child has fever, diarrhea, and is vomiting, to keep your child home. Anything else? My son has a cold. He does not have a fever, no diarrhea, he is very active, just a bad runny nose (does have allergy's as well), a bit of congestion. He coughs very seldomly, his eyes get a little glossy throughout the day and today in school, he vomited once. He said his throat was hurting him. Since he has been home, he hasn't complained about anything, he is active as normal, no vomiting, just the runny nose and glossy eyes. Tomorrow he has a field trip, that we already paid for, and i am not sure if I should send him, if there is no vomiting. What do you all think? Is it best to just keep him home?

Colds can last for days, sometimes weeks. As long as there is no fever, vomiting or diarrhea, mine are going to school. I send 3 boxes of tissues at the beginning of the school year, like everyone else is supposed to, so I know she will have supplies at her disposal. She also has her own personal hand sanitizer, so we're good.
