Hi ladies! I am in Chicago, and am going to use a religious exempt letter for my daughter so she can start daycare. Do I need to take this to the doctor and have them sign it, too? Or do I just take it straight to the daycare?<br><br>
Also, in Illinois, is it true that there is no "form" available, and you have to write your own letter?<br><br>
Thanks a bunch!

Why would a doctor sign a <i>religious</i> exemption?<br>
You could pm LongIsland. I'm not sure how "wordy" an IL is required to be.<br><br><a href="http://www.909shot.com/state-site/Illinois.htm" target="_blank">http://www.909shot.com/state-site/Illinois.htm</a><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
