2.  84% would still send them to school with red, watery eyes but no fever.

 

3.  51% said they’d still send them to school even if they DID have a slight fever, as long as they were acting normal.

 

4.  42% said they’d still send them to school if they’d THROWN UP, and didn’t have any other symptoms.  But only if they’d thrown up once.
