A father in Massachusetts says his nine-year-old son – a 4th-grader – was sent home from school this week because he was sneezing, CBS Boston reports.
“I sneezed two times, then the teacher told me to go to the nurse,” said the boy, Lancinet Keita.
Lancinet said he felt fine, but his sneezes sent him to the nurse’s office where he had to wait for his dad to pick him up from John A. Bishop Elementary School in Arlington, Massachusetts.

His father, Thierno Keita, said a call from the school nurse Tuesday morning caught him by surprise.
“I’ve been so upset about it,” Thierno Keita
