USE THE SICK DAY!

In reality, unless everyone at your school speaks English the only person that really matters is your co-teacher. If she says to use the sick day, use it. To push the issue with her and to make her push the issue with your principal will put  her in an awkward position.  Maybe you've been in Korea longer than I have (only 1 and 1/2 years) but the politics of the schools are difficult and varied.  Trust your co-teacher. she's the one that really matters in your school environment.

Good luck! Don't feel guilty!  At my school "calling in sick" would mean i just call my co-teacher. I wouldn't even have to talk to anyone else.  Anyway, Anyway, just do it and have fun in Jeju!
