my oldest DD is in Kindergarten.  the last day or two she has had a cough - she's not coughing constantly but when she starts to cough she coughs a few times.  other than this cough she seems fine - i asked her if she feels ok and she says she does - i asked her if her throat hurts and she says no - she doesn't have a fever - she is acting normal. 

do you think it's ok to send her to school? other than this cough ever little bit she seems fine to me but i don't want to get in trouble for sending her.....

I would send her if it's just a cough and NO other symptoms.

yea it's JUST a cough... she doesn't even have a runny nose... nothing but the cough!

Quoting lanceandhailey:

I would send her. My kids get a cough when the weather starts to change, it never fails. They all woke up yesterday morning with a cough, and it usually lasts a few days. If she's not running a fever, I would send her.

With just a cough I would send her, no fever means its not contagious.

Yes, She just has a cough. You won't get in trouble for sending her unless she has a fever or is throwing up.

 Yes I would send her. I'm not sure why you're asking, really. If she's not sick enough to see a doctor than she's well enough to go to school, IMO.

okay - thanks mamas.  i just didn't want to be that mom that sends her kids to school sick.  she's acting totally normal though so i don't think she's sick sick.  normally if she is sick she sleeps til noon and does nothing but lay on the couch all day.
