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.

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
