1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Not only is it legal, it is illegal to segregate them or to treat them different from other students.
Is that wise from a public health standpoint? - it is probably fine. While risks of transmission cannot be reduced to zero, simple precautions can minimize that risk to reasonable levels. If you insist on an absolutely minimum risk, home school your kids and never let them out of the house.
