They should have contacted the parent - just like for any other symptom. It was not an immediate life-death emergency such as the child having a heart-attack. My daughter was once coughing up blood. But it was not a lot - she was not dying on the spot (it was pneumonia) They did not rush her to the hospital - they contacted ME, and I took her to the doctor straight from the school. How is this any different? WHY WHY WHY do they separate little children from a parent when going to the hospital if any kind of "mental" issue is involved?
I agree with your opinion.
