My school (in New Jersey) recently sent me a letter stating that they didn't have my daughter's exemption on file (how convenient; it was the FIRST form I submitted when registering!), and now they have an urgent need for a new form that has an actual explanation. Apparently the guidelines changed this year, and there is a statute that states the need for an explanation on religious grounds.
First instinct is to say that religious freedom dictates that the state not question religious practice. I mean, what if my reason doesn't satisfy them!?
Anyway, does anyone have any examples of reasons they have give that HAVE BEEN accepted?
I need this form in the next 24 hours...but I'm prepared to write a provisional letter and replace it...
Again, I'm in New Jersey. It'd be helpful if you are, too. Please email me at vespersongs at hotmail dot com.
Thanks a million!!!
