New to forum and have learned lots so thanks to all the respectful posters here.
I have a situation currently that I am not sure how to handle. I have three sons. 6 year old son, 6 year old step-son and a 3 year old step-son. My son was not vaccinated for pox. 6 year old step-son was. 3 year old was not and came down with pox with a fever starting last Sunday December 1st. (he's doing just fine BTW). Anyway, I made the mistake of telling the school when dropping off the two 6 year olds on Monday that their younger brother had pox. Later that morning my wife got a call from the principle and he was somewhat condescending and asking what were we thinking sending our non-vaccinated son to school having been exposed to pox. He was not sick or showing any signs so we thought nothing of it but thought it would be good to at least advise the school. He went to school on Tuesday and at days end the principle called and said that he was not to return to school until the 19th!! So he goes back for 1.5 days and then it's Christmas break. I called health dept and they were aware of the situation but told me that since there was no outbreak at school that they couldn't do anything such as send kids home. I called the priciple back and he told me that they had "advised" him that it wouldn't be a bad idea and that he also consulted the schools attorney on the matter!! What the heck!!?? So I don't know what to do. We can't afford to miss all this work as we're taking vacation over the upcoming holidays. This is nuts and I really don't know what to do. HELP!!
BTW, we are in Michigan and our son attends a charter school (if any of that matters).
