I think a lot of people here don't realize it. When it came up that DD's only partially vaxed, one of the moms in my playgroup said, "good luck getting her enrolled in school." And I told her it wouldn't be a problem because of the exemptions, and she rolled her eyes and said, whatever, they wouldn't let my oldest come to class on the first day until I turned in her vax record. Well yeah, duh, but they would have if you'd have taken the exemption.
Although, I dunno, because at both of the preschools she's been to here, they haven't even said a word to me about it. They both asked for vax records, and each time I said, oh we don't vax, and they said ok, fine, just sign here. I asked if they wanted a note from my doctor (we had the option of using a medical exemption), and they said no, my signature was just fine.
