SICK , my dd said he was sick from homeroom until lunch when they sent him home, Monday and now...

My kid is sick :( she woke me up at 1245 saying my tummy hurts and then "blahhhh" she started throwing up and hasn't stopped. And now it is going south.

It wouldn't be so bad but and I say BUT I always worry about aspiration with my dd beacuase of her weak lungs. When she throws up it is so scary. Her disability just makes lung infections so scary :( buy she is finally sleeping so, hopefully she'll be ok.

Ugh, lesson to moms, keep your kids home when sick!

 ETA


1) my kid is 8 yes I know about incubation periods of illness

2) you're a parent there is never an excuse to.send a kid thAt you know is sick I.e fever within 24hrs, vomitting within 24 hrs etc to class

3) we do have a nurse, the nurse was notified he wasn't vomitting all over the room. 

4) believe it or not my 8yr old is VERY reliable honest and trustworthy. I believe her. why would she come hone and tell me this. as soon as I walked into the school she and the ASP teacher mentioned it to me. several kids were discussing it. why are kids discredited. my child has no reason to lie to me

My daughter's middle school changed their attendance policy mid year last year that attendance would not be taken until lunch time so all the kids that came to school sick so they wouldn't be counted absent had to stick around until lunch.

my DD has a cold... I'm not keeping her home from school with a cold. I give her medicine to keep her good all day. If she were throwing up... that'd be a different story or if she had a fever.

Thanks. I just hope no one else gets it in her class. It is violent. I know sometimes parent are in a tight spot but it is so unfair to do this to other kids and other parents you know!

She is actually excited to get bouillon , that's my miracle cure. She <3s it

Yea a sniffle is different. My dd said this poor little boy threw up in his bookbag :(

Of course her teacher is so sweet she let him sit there until the mom got there, contaminating the others! Ugh

To send your kid to school throwing up? Yes there is an option. That's nonsense. I'm sorry
