Sick Today, School Tomorrow?

Recommended Posts

I know I'll probably have to wait and see how she's doing in the morning but it would be nice to forewarn the carpool if I can't drive tomorrow.

If your child is having a gluten reaction all afternoon and evening, are they okay for school the next day or do you usually keep them home?

Just looking for other's experiences! :)

We usually expect DD to go to school (and stay at school) when glutened, but her symptoms don't include disruptive diarrhea.

If she couldn't keep out of the bathroom, I would keep her home. In fact, most schools have policies that a kid has to be free of puke and diarrhea for 24 hours. Not just to keep disease from spreading, but also because it is disruptive to your student and others.

Oh yeah... I hope she is feeling better soon!

I make my dd go to school. They let her lay her head down or whatever she needs, but she is at least there. And they are ok w/ her diarrhea if she has been glutened. I already talked to the school nurse and she is fine with it. Since diarrhea from being glutened isn't contagious, there is no problem. But if your child gets REALLY sick (like unable to function properly) you may want to keep her home.
