Default Chickenpox exposure

If a child has unknown immunization status and has been exposed to someone with chickenpox but they are currently asymptomatic ...

... If its been 3-5 days post exposure and they are immunecompetent ...after they recieve the varicella vaccine....can they go back to school?
...if its been over 5 days but asymptomatic...can they go back to school? Or should they stay home and be observed? And if so...for how long?
