In brief: Serious Fatigue

School age children are normally quite active.
For a young child to be sleeping most of the day and having fatigue, I would be concerned about a more serious underlying condition, including diabetes or anemia. While allergies can make one feel tired, a child should not be excessively fatigued or lethargic from them without significant other symptoms.
