I am concerned about your daughter's symptoms. She does not appear to have a fever but her drowsiness and vomiting may be signs of meningitis.Please ask your doctor to see your daughter.

Do you know whether she fell at school, possibly bumped her head, is she doing the same today? If she is then she should be seen by a doc or pead.

If she is very tired and vomiting, then she is probably sick - even if she doesn' t have a temperature.

IF she is battling to keep anything down, try dropping some watered down energade into her mouth with a syringe. If you have rehydrate solution, give her small sips of that too.
Dry toast or brown apple can also be settling on her tummy.
Maybe you can get her a suppository for the nausea.
Lset her sleep as much as she wants to, just ensure she gets lots of fluids - don' t worry if she won' t eat - you don' t feel like eating when you are sick either.
