What would you do ??

coco1728 Tue 25-Feb-20 21:27:28

Sorry forgot to mention it's due to coronavirus

ImFreeToDoWhatIWant Tue 25-Feb-20 21:27:54

Depends, have they been sent home because the boilers broken or because of corona virus, I'm adding that's what you're actually concerned about...

How big is the school? And why were they sent home?

A 15 child entry primary school with this level of (presumable) sickness would worry me. A 300 child entry secondary school and it would barely register.

Cross post!

In the UK or elsewhere?

chocolateisavegetable Tue 25-Feb-20 21:29:32

Also interested in what country this is

ImFreeToDoWhatIWant Tue 25-Feb-20 21:29:40

Have they had contact with any of the affected people? If so I'd self isolate, if not I'd send them in.

Why have they been sent home?

I mean are they diagnosed, have they been somewhere and been exposed? on a plane? Been in Italy? China?

what is the scenario?

PurpleFlower1983 Tue 25-Feb-20 21:30:58

If this is precautionary because of the Italy trip then YABU.

mumsiedarlingrevolta Tue 25-Feb-20 21:30:58

And are you in the UK?

coco1728 Tue 25-Feb-20 21:31:39

Back story they have been to Italy skiing and got home on Saturday but have been allowed to attend school on Monday and half day today

Really depends on the circumstances. If it's because those DC and staff happened to go on holiday to Italy in half term, then yes, I would say YABU, but if it's because they have had contact with someone who has been diagnosed with coronavirus then no, YANBU.

Is this in Brighton by any chance?

clary Tue 25-Feb-20 21:32:38

Is this the one where the staff and students have been skiing in Lombardy op?

I wouldn't be bothered tbh, the isolation for this group is a massive precaution, they are very unlikely to have the virus. Really really unlikely to be an issue with yr DC going to school, esp if the people concerned are not there IYSWIM

Did they go to one of the red zones. If so should be self isolating but your children have not been anywhere close to a red zone so send them to school as per public health englands advice.

Wasn't there already a thread on this a few days ago?

Xyzzzzz Tue 25-Feb-20 21:34:56

Is this Huddersfield

AStarSoBright Tue 25-Feb-20 21:35:20

Essex? This is the 7th thread on various groups I've read on the same topic tonight.

bitheby Tue 25-Feb-20 21:37:55

Well presumably if they've all been sent home for 14 days then there's no risk now. So might as well go to school.

fairgame84 Tue 25-Feb-20 21:39:22

Doncaster by any chance?
3 schools have sent pupils home.

CtrlU Tue 25-Feb-20 21:39:56

Of course your not being unreasonable....

Who’s taking them chances ?

It’s not worth it

isabellerossignol Tue 25-Feb-20 21:40:10

Can we play guess the school? I'm going for Banbridge Academy. Or Our Lady and St Patricks College in Belfast.

isabellerossignol Tue 25-Feb-20 21:41:05

Or indeed all the dozens of other schools in the UK that have done the same thing today...

FoxInABox Tue 25-Feb-20 21:41:41

Throwing my guess in - Cardinal Heenan?
