Helen: My 6 year old grandson was born with a breathing problem, spent several days in NICU before he was released to go home. He is now in the 1st grade and has a chronic, loud, barking cough. He is not contagious and has no other symptoms or fever, yet they are insisting that we bring in a doctor’s note stating that his cough is ‘normal’ for him and not contagious before he is allowed back to school. They have had other doctor’s notes stating he is normal and his cough is not an issue. Is this legal for them to do? They say it is required often to have these notes.
