Since the MD left decision to you, I would think that nobody is in a better position to answer that question than you. You are right there with her and can assess her complaints and symptoms better than all of us. The primary thing is that she is afebrile and not infectious according to your doctor. However if your child is a senior in HS. Let her stay home. Right?

It is up to you, but if she does not feel better by morning I would go ahead and keep her home. As she will most likely not be able to focus at school, when she is feeling so ill. And rest can do wonders, when you are not feeling good.

If no fever let her go. Tomorrow is Friday & she can rest all weekend. If needed she can leave school early. School's almost over.
Actually, just use your best judgement as a parent. Go with your first instinct.

If doctor says it's up to you sent her to school, it will be a lesson of commitment. Unless you think she is really sick then keep her home. Point being nowadays people are to quick to put down their responsibilities at the drop of a dime. My apologies if I seem cold not my goal.

With a sore throat, headache, and earache, she must feel awful and probably wouldn't retain anything from school. I'd keep her home.
