Keep your SICK kid at HOME!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

If your child has a cold, the flu, has vomited or had a fever in the last 24 hours KEEP THEM HOME!! They should be at home getting better! NOT at school, not in Daycare, NOT out and about! I don't CARE why you want to send them, you are getting every one else SICK with your irresponsibility!

My family has been sick since before HALLOWEEN!! Every time we get better, my DS brings something home from Preschool, and it makes its rounds through our house! First the stomach flu, then bacterial bronchitis, then a cold, then the flu... then another cold. over and over! I'm SICK of getting SICK!

Seriously, runny nose with anything but clear boogies- stay home.

Cough that sounds flemy- stay home.

vomiting, even once means- STAY HOME for 24 hours after the last time vomiting occured.

fever- even slightly elevated, also means stay home for 24 hours after the fever has been gone!

Otherwise, you are sharing your germs with every one else in your childs class!!

Thursday and Friday only 8 out of 17 kids was at my DS's class because of people like YOU sharing your childs cold! Keep it at HOME! That's where it belongs!

These are NOT just my arbitrary rules either! These are things that were printed in the paperwork YOU signed when you enrolled your child in this school! This is what EVERY pediatrician worth his (her) salt has recommended to you when your child is sick. stop spreading the germs! And for heavens sake, teach your child how to properly wash their hands!

Thanks.

Ugh I wish it was that simple. I agree with some of the illnesses you listed, but if I kept my child home every time she has a cough and runny nose, the school would take me to court after sending dss to my house.

 Middle and REALLY HIGH-SCHOOL.

 They will send him home in a heart-Beat, But Lord help If more then 2 days then In trouble.

 However, He BETTER NOT HAVE A FEVER ?????

   me: but he does

  Them: he is missing to many school days

 me : I picked up his work

 Them : NO, he needs to be in class.

 Me : he still has a fever, you told me not to bring him. ?

Incubation period means the likely germ spreader infected everyone before he had any symptoms.

Lol at keeping kids home for a cough or cold.

Oh and sorry, get educated, you are contagious BEFORE showing symptoms.

If your family is always so sick then that is on you, for some reason you have a low immune system.

Honey, garlic, cumin, fruits, veggies, etc all great for building immune systems.

Get some vitamins.

Stop blaming others and fix yourself.

I forgot, good chance you/your son are picking up germs elsewhere so wash your hands, carry sanitizer with you!!!

Ever think that maybe your kid is the one getting everyone else sick? Also, colds, flu, etc are contagious before any signs can be seen, so your kiddo will get sick regardless.....up the vitamin C and get the hell over it!

lol boogies

a dry cough or clearly running nose is okay. but a cough with phlem or boogies that are anything BUT clear are reasons to keep your child home.

Also, I'm talking about a preschool. No DSS (CPS) to call for missing class there.

I'm so sick of being sick!! yuck!

 I agree and I'm at a loss, I HAVE to go to work or I lose my job (just started a new one and thats the rules). I'm sick right now, so I will be looking like a dumbass but I'm bringing a face mask! My kids are sick, and guess what It was my sons teacher who got all of her students sick....I'm not happy....

sorry but the school says kids have to be in school if it is a cold and no temp. My girl got sent home because she had a temp of 99.1 when she went she was fine. I talked to the Dr who is also the head of our health department , he said anything over 100.5 should be sent home. But she got worse Saturday night. She said she felt better last night but had a cough and i heard it again in her sleep this morning. I am going to say as it stands she probably will not be going in, and will be seeing the Dr. If i kept my kids home every time they coughed or sneezed etc they wold never be in school. They have allergies. If she would of presented being ill , with fever or stomach hurting or not acting like herself which indicates she is ill. I would of kept her home.We are now at 5 days missed.

  LOL, you are actually contagious 2-4 days before getting sick, some can be just carriers, and some are sickly..?

  Schools are really the ones who need Educated, but they will never believe that ??

AMEN. Preach it sister!

Missed Christmas with the family because my son brought home the flu. More and more considering homeschooling. My poor daughter hasn't had a dry nose in over a month.
