My son is on flu 3 of the first three months of school.
It's up in the air whether I'll get it or not, but odds are good.
I'm with you. I just got a letter from my son's school that he has missed too much and we need to work on a plan to improve his attendance. They are really pushing attendance numbers around here. I replied that the plan should be to encourage parents to keep kids home if they are sick so they don't share their germs constantly and not to push kids with fevers to come to school anyway just so that our numbers look good. We just got out of a pandemic, you'd think they'd understand that spreading germs isn't a great idea. My son has literally been sick for two months with a cough and congestion. It randomly gets worse and he gets a fever and sleeps for 3 days and we have to keep him home.
