If the principal knows your son has a prescription for the Epi-pen, and you have not provided the Epi-pen to the school, that's most likely what he wants to talk about. They don't want to be sued.

Yes, this makes the most sense to me, even though the other comments were helpful.

 

I hope you are right in saying that the meeting will most likely be about providing the epi-pen. The principals secretary specifically said that the principal wants to meet with all those who are applying for exemption AND have allergies requiring an epi-pen.

 

To me this sound more like something they are going to bring up as questioning me for allowing an epi pen but not vaccines.

Yikes, it doesn't sound good. My fingers are crossed for you that all goes smoothly.

Well if it really comes down to it, stand your ground - it's none of the principal's damn busniess why you chose one and not the other.  You have that right to chose.

I found this, it may be helpful regarding both the exemption and the epi pen:
