No Shots No School Not True! School Districts Lying to Parents by Stating all Students Must be Fully Vaccinated when State Law Provides ExemptionsHealth Freedom Idaho is reporting that school districts throughout Idaho are sending threatening letters to parents and falsely claiming that their children must be fully vaccinated or they will not be able to be enrolled in school. Idaho State law actually allows for vaccine exemptions for religious and medical reasons. (Source.) One concerned mom in Idaho writes: "I was registering my son for kindergarten today (his only partial year of public school before he will be homeschooled). I noticed this passage and the way it was worded when I was filling out his registration paperwork. I came with his vaccine exemption form in hand already filled out, which they accepted. I was really bothered by the fact that we have the right to waive vaccines, and yet they write to parents that by law they have to have their vaccinations. This is wrong. They should say something like, 'It is Idaho State Law that you must have complete immunization records or an Idaho School Immunization Exemption Form to register your child for school.' I listened to moms coming in worried that they didn’t have vaccination records and the school never gave them the option to waive. If it is our right to waive, why is this not disclosed as part of proper informed consent?"

As far as I know from my own experience this has been true here in California, forever. For the most part I home schooled, my children, back in the 70's, 80's and 90's, but when some of them wanted to try conventional school, temporarily, I was told by the schools that they had to be vaccinated. Fortunately, I knew the score and supplied them with my own exemptions that I had printed out. I had to have exemptions on file when we were homeschooling through the state. I also asked the school official if they happened to have exemptions available there at the school and she showed me the ones they had which were exactly like the ones I provided. This was around 30 - 35 years ago. Sounds like schools in different states,are still refusing to acknowledge that there are exemptions.
Just a week ago, here in California, a letter was sent to the schools informing them that all students entering the 7th grade would have to have an updated ME because of the upcoming passage of SB276. Well, I got to the bottom of that one pretty quick, after the nurse at the local middle school put my daughter and grandson through a load of crap, refusing him admission into the school. Come to find out the letter that was sent out was a bogus lie causing all kinds of confusion on the part of parents and school officials. I downloaded and printed out the exact law code as of Aug 2019 that refuted the letter the nurse had. That helped straighten out the controversy and it was smooth sailig after that.
