KEEP THEM HOME!!!! They'll pick up anything under these conditions. Let them rest.

Keep them home: their temps may well rise later today and they might give whatever they have to their classmates too.

I've to one at home on sofa with similar thing, and we go away tomorrow too! Hope they are better soon.

Yep, keep them at home so that you can make sure the temps stay down.

Keep them home, they probably feel better because they have rested over night.

Going against the majority here, I'd send them in! (but clearly it's your choice) They aren't going to be any more likely to be ill on holiday if they go in or don't go. They will either be ill or not, and you can't change that IYSWIM.

Not that it should change your decision as their Mum, but I'd also expect a bit of a grilling from school as they will have a lot of people just taking the day off and saying they are sick in order to travel on holiday today (it's a strategy suggested on MN frequently!). So don't feel you are being " picked on when they are actually ill".

Oh my god I can't believe there are children who don't sieze every opportunity to stay home. My youngest actually requested to stay home for a stubbed toe two days ago, he felt he couldn't cope with the walking involved in the day.

But they are more likely to be ill if they go to school, Theas. A fever is a sign that your body is fighting something off. They're susceptible to any illness during this time.

When a kid on the cusp of an illness rests, his body spends its energy repairing itself - it's a good thing.

Lots if sympathy BB. Also a phobic one.

pure hell days like this. Can you get any support? If they have only been sick at 10am and now it can't be too bad? Did they eat in between?

Yes, it's horrible - I hate the lying await waiting for THE SOUND.

12 hours with no sick is good news - did they wake up hungry?
