Religious exemption and school forms

Hi Ladies,

My LO is starting school this year so this is all new to me. We have vaccinated in the past but have decided to stop due to religious reasons.

Are there any of you ladies that have done the same and if so, how did you fill out your school form? I've been getting conflicting information and we want to do what is right. Some say to leave it blank and just attach the exemption, others say to fill out the form with the exemption. What did you do?

Thanks in advance.

There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

 

Book and herb loving mama to 1 preteen and 2 teens (when did that happen?).  We travel, go to school, homeschool, live rurally, eat our veggies, spend too much time...

We started vaxxing and stopped but I have no intention of stating that in my religious exemption. CT is a very simple fill out name, sign, turn in, so there isn't room to explain select/delayed or previous vaxxes. If in the even of an outbreak I wanted to know if my child had antibodies so as not to be excluded from school, I would just run titers and turn that in as proof.

NJ. Unfortunately there's no state form in the state. Plus am looking into a private school.

You need to write out your own statement and you may need to see an attorney about that.

Here is the law. http://www.state.nj.us/health/cd/doc..._exemption.pdf
