    Default Sending a child back to school after flu?

    My 6yo has been home since last Thursday. Today he's feeling a whole lot better but still has a slight temp of 37.8.

    Would you send him or keep home one more day?

    I don't want to risk him infecting other kids.

    I would keep him home one more day just incase the temp spikes again or send him half day. I know the flu is knocking a lot of people this year, my DD including. Took her awhile to get
    Back to her self

    At a temp of 37.8 they would send them home so yes I would keep them at home.

    They say you shouldn't send them back to school until the their temperature has been normal for 24 hours.

    Thank you, I did end up keeping him home. It's hard when they're bouncing around saying "I'm better!!"

    It wouldn't be fair to the other kids and families.

    Hopefully tomorrow! X
