I already posted this in my Tribe group, but not a lot of replies...

Anyone in Alaska(Anchorage, ideally) have/had a child in public school and not vaccinated? I'm going to go for a religious exemption since philosophical exemptions aren't recognized here. I just wanted to know how hard it is to go around doing this? Do the schools give you a hard time? My two oldest are fully vaccinated(minus chickenpox and flu) and my youngest won't be vaccinated at all..
