Not enough info: The physical exam is very important. Has there been weight loss, diarrhea, joint pains, poor resilience, changes in academics? Iron and nutritional status? Other medical illnesses such as diabetes, asthma, chronic tonsillitis, heart disease. Persistent low grade fever in a child deserves a thorough and exhaustive evaluation until the cause is found.

Infection?: Sounds like an infection. Low grade fevers and a normal blood count are common with many infections. The fatigue is common during the infection, but should improve. Follow up with her pediatrician if she continues to have fatigue.
