My DD is going to a cute little private preschool soon, and here's what I came up with for an 'exemption' letter. The director of the school doesn't care about kids and vaxes, but says she needs to have a letter on file in case the board of health drops by.

Anyway, I came up with the following brief statement. She said it didn't need to include state codes or anything, just 'a letter'.

To Whom it May Concern:

The practice of vaccination is deeply antithetical to our religious, philosophical, spiritual, intellectual realities. Thus, as parents and full legal guardians of ---, this letter serves to formally announce that any perceived 'lack' of vaccinations is due to having two informed and loving parents, and not due to any form of neglect or ignorance.

I feel a little rude, in regards to the director, who seems ultra kind. I just kind of want to cover bases in case the BOH ever does look at it.

Boy this stuff makes me edgy!

This is interesting to me, DD (2) starts a new preschool next week and while her old school had no qualms about her unvaxed status, I'm not sure where the new school stands and am kinda nervous. Vaxes aren't mandatory here, but I don't want a fight from anyone...argh!

One of the reasons I wanted to homeschool, but for reasons out of my control I have to do this for the preschool. I just filled out a generic religious exemption form from my state, which isn't really even for preschool anyway, but now I'm thinking about it, I might make them ask for it more formally than a certain relative who happens to be on the board of the preschool telling me in passing that they might want something, but now knowing what . . . or maybe a letter like yours, which I don't think is rude, and mine might go a bit farther, who knows. . .
