Ok, so I've got this form for dd2's nursery school that I'm supposed to fill out, and I told them I'm not comfortable with the wording.
Here's what it says:
"I agree that in the event of my child, _______________, contracting a vaccine preventable disease, the _____-______ Nursery School assumes no liability.
I also understand that in the event of an outbreak of a vaccine preventable disease in ________-_______ Nursery School, my child not being immunized against that disease, may be excluded from attending school until medical information acceptable to the school is provided and an approval from the Public Health Services."
I've asked the president of the school (it's a co-operatively run school, so she's also a parent) about it and she's going to ask the Public Health Nurse for clarification on this second paragraph (like, what kind of information and approval they need), and I've said I wasn't comfortable with the wording. The school is accountable to Community Services, so not completely private, but not really government-run. I have said I will agree to the part about not holding the school liable.
I'm wondering what others have done in similar situations. I'm not sure about the legal issues with this. Can the school turn us away if I refuse to sign the waiver? DD's been going for about a month and a half.
