Unbelievable, mama. Big hugs to you and your sweet little guy. I agree that homeschooling is what is best for him. I hope you can help him work through this.
This boggles my mind, because I hear this often. The whole "healthy snacks only" (which I am completely happy with) and then they give them candy at school. WHY???? I already know this will be a huge issue for me when/if my ds ends up going to ps next year.

Others made the suggestion that if you hate candy that much don't support the supply and demand and have a party instead.

Do you know what the exact wording of the MI regulation is? Does it require only that you inform the school/state of your exemption in writing or does it REQUIRE the state form? (which i doubt?)...also, i think if they...
You do have to use the one the state provides, with all the ugly language. That is the only form they can/will accept. I've had to use it several times, no problems at all. Nobody has ever seemed to care or even mentioned it. I am on record with the county as my ped obviously has to turn in the names of patients who don't vax/selective vax and all I get is the letter every year (twice a year, I think) reminding me that my child is not up to date on his vaccinations. ...
Brigance?
I have used this one in their store and it is really neat. It is on our wish list. http://www.lakeshorelearning.com/seo...ce/viewall.jsp
