If your child's teacher or teacher's aide came to school sick?  If they came back to school too early after being sick?  Would it bother you or not really?

I would go if I didn't feel good but never if I had a fever or vomiting. I understand your concern and if I were a teacher at a special needs school I would take extra precautions.

Totally agree here.  If I were a teacher, and I just didn't feel well, I would probably go to the work.  Like if I had PMS, didn't feel like it, had a rough night's sleep, etc., I would just suck it up and go.  BUT, if I had a fever, respiratory symptoms (unrelated to allergies), flu, stomach virus, etc., I would definitely NOT go!

Well, if your child's teacher came to school sick and then got your own child sick, it would be your business then.  But, you don't care?  I honestly find that hard to believe.

Teachers should have to follow the same rules the kids have to follow. No fevers for 24 hours w/out meds and no throwing up.

Glad I'm not the only one who feels this way:)  My son goes to a special needs school for medically fragile children, and I would be devastated if he caught something from a teacher who brought it to school, knowing they were sick!

It would bother me. Even more so in your situation. 

That is really irresponsible. <To me.


I expect the teachers to follow the same guidelines as the parents have to follow. After all, the kids won't just catch an illness from other students, they can get sick from a sick teacher or teacher aide as well.

If I had a child with immune issues, I certainly would care.
