Do I send her to school or not?

DD complained about feeling sick in school on Friday at lunch time and was told to get in the line. Then at home time she vomited and was sent home wearing spare clothes with hers in a bag, yesterday she was fine until about 3pm when she felt sick. She also has a rash covering her torso, back and her private parts as well as the odd spot on hr limbs, arms and face. Chicken pox is going round hr class but her rash isn't typical. She's been fine today apart from the itchy rash. Do I keep her off tommorrow, she has PE so rash wil be seen even though she seems well?

I would keep her off till tuesday. vommiting bugs are going round, and at uor school they like it to be 48 hrs.

She can't be 100% yet imo.

I'm so glad you've said so that's what I thought but then thought because she seems fine I should send her but as she still has the rash....
