and contagious?

i'd say still send her, just because your ds has it, doesn't mean she'll get it too. my dd was exposed 3 times at nursery before she actually came down with it. if it's any help, 4 days before dd came out with the first spot, she was very cranky, bit of a temperature and had an upset tummy. send her in, but if she shows any of these symptoms, then maybe keep her off.

She can still go - it could take up to 3 weeks for her to develop it, if she does, and she'd only be contagious a few days before the spots appear.

Thanks She has had upset tum today and earlier last week and is rather grumpy now. I'll make a decision in the morning.
