do parents send their kids when they have been poorly all weekend.

i had 3 kids today 2 of which have een poorly. the older one had a temp but was fine in himself and i had to take him school at 1pm as he is doing half days at the minute. he didnt want to go but mum said he had to

i also had a nearly 3 yr old who had a poorly tummy all weekend and was clearly under the weather when he came today.

I have had kids sent when they were not that well...not sure how to deal with it..ie. where to draw the line...they were not infectious to others and not that unwell...but still not all great either...

I can understand the parents to a degree (unless the kids is really really unwell) as they are too under a lot of pressure to not have too many sick days at their own jobs..

my previous job now requires people to take time off with no pay for sick children...(that on top of a mandatory 4 weeks off without pay each year due to the economic situation)

I am not saying its right to send your kids when they are ill...but it isnt always that easy to stay home either....

i do sympathise with the parents but one mum said she could come home but would rather he went to school.

the other didnt even tell me c had been ill untill i phoned and asked if something had upset c this morning as he was very tearfull

i dont mind having them with colds etc but would be nice to be informed they dont feel well

yeah you are right...that wasnt nice then..

at least all my parents let me know in detail what is happening with the kids..
