Ds has a cold and is pretty snotty and has a mild cough. He doesn't have a fever. Should I keep him home from preschool or send him?

**update**
I kept him home. The Secretary said the stomach flu is going around already too.

That's what I was thinking but wanted input from other moms. I never got to stay home for a feverless cold, but don't want to be the one to get everyone else's kids sick 4 days into the school year.

My rule is if I would not let my dd play outside, I do not send her to school.

Keep him home. That runny nose could spread his cold virus/germs.

Our school policy is if they have a temp,vomiting or diarrhea keep them home.

I think as a mom over time you can tell if it is a cold,allergies,strep or something worse.

I'm sure it's just a cold. I just didn't want him snotting everything up. Lol. He said he didn't want to give his gems to Molly because she's nice and pretty and his girlfriend. Lol. He will go back Monday. They don't have school Fridays.
