Yes, when you call them in sick you should let them know why your kids wont be in school for a few days.

You'll have to explain their absence, so yes.

Yes! Other kids need to be told ASAP that they have been exposed!

They have no school today and tomorrow. They have teachers workshop or something like that.

They have no school today and tomorrow. just to let the school know that the kids in my childrens' classrooms where exposed as well.

yes you should let the school know. so they can let the other parents know that their children have possibly been exposed.

yes
The school will need to send out info to all the parents that the kids have been exposed and to watch for symptoms

There is no vaccine for Scarlet fever
