Getting out with a fever?

If you have two children..............would you pack up your youngest (who has a fever virus) to take the oldest to school?  Or would you let the oldest skip for a day?  There is no bus option and the dad cannot take to school on this particular day.

I've packed up my daughter when she was sick to take my son to school.  It's not fun, but sometimes it needs to be done.

I would pack up the sick kid. I don't keep my kids out of school if they're not sick.

I would pack my other child up and get the well one to school. If one is throwing up I try to find another ride for the well one first. That happened Friday with my youngest. She was throwing up so I called my dad to see if he could take a few minutes of work to help me out so I didn't end up with puke in her car seat.

 I've packed up 2 younger sick ones to take the oldest to school before (missed the bus).

If I didn't have a friend who could, then yes, I would.  As long as you're just going to drop the other child off, I don't think it's a big deal.

 Yes, I would. It's just a drive in the car.

I would take the sick one--I've taken myself sick before, but we're only 3 blocks from school.  The only problem when I took myself sick was that I used the circle drive to pick him up and I usually park in the lot and walk to where he comes out--so he didn't know to look for me in my car!
