It would seem that schools have no guidelines when it comes to this swine flu epidemic. I telephoned mine this morning and they have nothing to follow. Most of the time parents put children to my DH school ill to spread it among everyone so it is worrying that a child not too ill with it could be sitting in class coughing and sneezing and then smit another child who may end up in hospital. Anyone coughing or sneezing at the moment should be sent home i think.
Well done your school moon, thats fab, pity mine isnt like that. A cough and sneeze doesnt mean flu no, but at the moment it probably does and every child is affected differently. Your child may go to school with just a cough and a sneeze and then give it to another child who ends up in hospital.
last year dds school approach was to deny any existence of flu in the school, despite me specifically saying I needed to know so I could be proactive with dds asthma meds. Even when dd went down with something suspiciously flu like the secretary told me over the phone 'its not swine flu' - well it may not have been but it what ever it was was enough to cause dds asthma to flare severely.
