Hello everyone -
Last year I was working with Gary Krasner on writing my religious exemption letter to get my daughter (who is fully vaxed to two) into kindergarten and my son (who in not vaxed at all) into preschool.
He approved my letter but I ended up not needing it at the time since my daughter's titers showed measels immunity and my son's preschool accepted my religious exemption with no problem.
Here's my problem. My school district does preschool evalutations in hopes of catching problems early and wouldn't you know it they caught a problem with my son's speech. I was told by the woman in the district that he would definately qualify for speech services and all I have to do is register him with the school district and bring his immunization records and he would recieve speech services. So I contact Gary to make sure I'm doing the right thing and he tells me that it's even more difficult to obtain a religious exemption in NY state and although my letter is ok it's not strong enough and I should add another paragraph citiing scriptures to support another paragraph.
I'm a little confused to say the least. I'm pretty sure I've read to keep scriptures and such out of the letter. Am I wrong?
Can anyone offer any advice? Especially anyone in NY state who managed to get a religious exemption. I'm on Long Island if that matters any.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
