If your little 5/6/7 year old had a massive weekend with late nights and big days, would you give them a Monday off school to 'recover' so to speakor make them go?

I'd definitely give them a day at home. Absolutely no harm in that.

I make my child go unless she is really sick. We don't have big weekends during the school term, although we do go to a lot of places, we're always home by 5pm on the Sunday or sooner to give sufficient wind down time. I guess if there was some major event I would reconsider, like my daughter's best friend went to a different state to celebrate her great-grandad's 80th birthday along with his twin brother, I felt that was a fair enough reason to miss a few days of school, it's not often that someone turns 80 with their twin, a very big deal indeed. So for something like that as a one-off I probably would, but not for the run of the mill big weekend.

I guess it would depend on how late they got to sleep last night. Anytime after 10pm I would keep them home or let them sleep in and drop off when they woke up (obviously no later then 11ish).

I would keep her home and call it a 'mental health day' after such a big weekend there is no way she is going to be productive at school. In saying that, I can't keep my daughter home from school (preschool), unless we are at the drs as she loves it so much. Woot woo for holidays!!!

As a teacher - keep them home. If they are tired they won't learn anything anyway and I would much rather you sent them in well rested the next day!

If they are clearly tired this morning or still sleeping then yes I would keep them home.

No, they would go to school.

Have sent a child home before when they were clearly exhausted and falling asleep in their chair. No educational benefit for them to go to school if falling asleep in class. I also felt really sorry for them.
