Just wondering what your school's policy is when a child vomits. Do they get sent home or do they get sent back to class if they have no fever. We eat breakfast in the classroom. THis morning while we were eating breakfast I had a child tell me he didn't feel good and he was going to throw up. I can not handle throw up and this kid is not a whiner or a frequent flier to the nurse so I knew he was telling me the truth. As I am filling out the paper work, he throws up everywhere. So I take him to the nurse (praying the whole way he doesn't throw up again). She tells me I will check him for fever and if he doesn't have one he can rest and go back to class. UGHHHHHH not more than 5 minutes later he is back in my room. Granted he told me he felt fine and as it turns out the rest of the day he was normal, it still made me mad that they sent him back. We tell the parents please dont send your kids to school if they are throwing up, why don't we send them home if they are throwing up. I understand there are kids who are going to take advantage of that but still I know my kids and if you have never seen this kid in your clinic for even a hang nail don't you figure you could send him home. Ok sorry this turned into a rant.
