Should I tell my child's school about viral lung infections?

You shouldn't just tell your child's school about viral lung infections - your child shouldn't be going to school if your child is feeling ill or has been diagnosed with the disease. Viral lung infections can be easily spread to other people. For this reason, most schools advocate that sick children stay home until the disease has cleared up. Sending your child to school can also be dangerous if your child develops a complication, like difficulty breathing, and needs get to the hospital.
