Would you take him to school?

My neighbor asked me to keep her son today.  He was complaining of a sore throat, headache, and said he just didn't feel well.  He is 10.  

He is now bouncing off the walls.  He wants to play video games or go outside and ride a bike. He was all wimpy when his mom dropped him off.  Then about the time she started her shift he perked up.  (She can't have her phone where she works). I can't really call her to ask.  But pretty sure the kid played her today.

i know if it were my kid I would drop them off late.  He isn't marked absent for another hour.

Is it possible to call mom's place of work and talk to her?

Are you allowed to drop him off at school? If so, I would.

At 10 years old. I'd just drop him off at school and send mom a text to let her know that as soon as her shift started he was fine.

If you aren't able to tell mom I wouldn't, but I'd tell him it's not time to play, and mom is going to hear about his sudden burst of energy. You know her better than me though.

She is a surgical nurse and I know she has a few surgeries today.  I can leave her a message but she won't get it until she is out.

Quoting BrownEyedGirl86:

I would want to, but if he's already played her like that, you KNOW once he gets home from school, he'll act all wimpy again and tell his mom you FORCED him to go to school anyway even though he was SOO sick.
