Inspired by the first weeks of school plague... and the letter S  
Okay, so we all know that teachers tend to be held to a higher standard across the board. We’re known for going into work while on death’s door. This leads me to my question. How sick is too sick?

I know there is a decent amount of teachers on here, so I wanted to know how both sides weighed in.

Teachers: What is your personal limit of working through the sickness? What's the sickest you've gone to work?

Parents: When do you think the teacher should just stay home? Do you hold teachers to a higher standard when it comes to this?

I don't think we've touched on this in here lately.

This. I think its up to the teachers judgement if its something non-contageous, but if it can be spread, PLEASE stay home! I'm immunocompromised and its bad enough when the other parents send their kids in obviously sick. I really don't need the teachers / nursery workers giving my kid their illnesses to send home to me as well!

Plus, arranging alternative childcare when you're a working mum? MAJOR PITA!
