Any one else having problems with their children being sick constantly in Kindergarten?
This is my son's first year in school and it seems like every other week he is sick. I volunteer in his class twice a week and I do see lots of sick kids present and I also see lots of them coming back from the nurses office sick.... It has gotten to the point where he has missed so much and I have had a call with his VP in regards to his absences. First I do not believe in sending my kids to school sick...! And I don't understand why everyone else seems too. It seems like I am sending my child well to school just so he can come back sick?.. He is top of his class and just won his first award for reading. He reads and is well rounded on everything that is taught and will be taught in kinder. I home school him so he has become very advanced.
With that being said I have been talked to by his VP in regards to all his absences.. By law they do a family check by phone to see why the extreme absences. Mind you I am always volunteering and very involved with his class when he is present. I explained that he has had a rough time in school including catching PINK EYE (which no one even bothered to call me to pick him up! Eyes all read and with discharge? Really! I advised her that he brings sanitizer and uses it throughout the days and I have even offered his teacher for me to come after school daily and clean the children's table tops etc.. I can't help when my chid gets sick and well if he's sick enough as a mother I feel he is best at home. I do and can not see me sending my child to school when he is feeling so horrible.. What kind of a mother would I be. He has all his homework turned in and has passed his progress report wth Flying Colors....
My son is home today as he has actually been to school these past couple of days sick but last night he was getting that horrible cough so I kept him home. I am awaiting a call from his VP to inform her of his absence once again.. I feel like I am walking on egg shells or doing something wrong by doing something Right..
Any advice of any other mothers going through this would be GREATLY appreciated!
