Sometimes her older sister misses as well, because I am not willing to drive younger DD around when she's so sick.
|My question is whether or not we should do an IEP for her at some point?|
|I got a nasty letter from the school last year due to absences, despite the fact that we contacted them and also had doctor's notes. It made me angry. I felt like we played by their rules of notification and we weren't keeping the girls out willy nilly.|
but everything has pros and cons
I'd definately get acknowledgement from the district IN WRITING that her absences are excused. Definately ask in Parenting the Special Needs Child for specific advice.
Could you let the neighbor borrow your vehicle or come over and watch your younger child while you go pick up the kids?
I suppose that's an option. She hasn't missed much school yet due to this, but it is something to think about. Older DD got the bug first, so there's been a couple of missed days for her too. It's flying through the school. (and our house)

|Our neighbor drives the kids in the mornings and I pick up the kids in the afternoons. Neighbor does not have access to a vehicle in the afternoons.|
