I had a kid who became sick on Tuesday around 8:45 am, so I called his mom and when she picked him up, she mentioned that “his sister went home from school for the stomach flu the day before.”
Immediately, I sent a group text that stated, “the stomach flu is going around and a child went home.”
One parent came and picked up her toddler because she just had a baby and was getting ready to start a New job in a couple days, so she didn’t want the new baby to get sick and didn’t want to get sick herself because she didn’t want to miss her first day of her new job.
1) Do respectable daycares get notice if a sibling is sick?

On Wednesday, the sick kid who left early Tuesday, returned and parent said he was just fine. I thought, well, that’s almost a 24 hr period since he was sick, so I didn’t say anything.
Wednesday evening I got sick. I work with my mother and she said she could handle everything on Thursday. I didn’t call the parents to close bc I had just called off daycare unexpectedly a few weeks ago due to angina.
Thursday morning, the uncle of one kid says, that his nephew threw up Wednesday evening. This boys mother didn’t say that at drop off.
I understand kids are contagious even after feeling better and contagious before symptoms appear. Which is the reason I don’t see how keeping the kids home 24 hrs helps.
Now...the best part, the mother who picked up her toddler to avoid missing work on Sat and getting new baby sick, gets sick at work and has her grandpas visitation to go to today!!!
