We have just been informed that a child at our son's (2 years old) school has the Coxsackie Virus. Should we be concerned?

In brief: Not particularly

This is one of many gut viruses that are associated with a variety of symptoms including fever, vomiting, diarrhea and skin rash.
A 2 yo is expected to get something like this an average of 2-3X/yr. It is not one of the scary germs but can be inconvenient.
