Where do your kids go to school?

In my city, you can't go to school without proper immunization as a public safety concern.

I've wondered this too but at our school if you have a religious reason behind it they let it go.

I wonder about that too. Here children have to be up to date in all vaccines.

Good luck with this. I got attacked in another post a few days ago for wanting to send my kids to a private school that requires vaccinations.

why would that be a reason to attack??  I wouldn't really want my kid going to a school where vaccines weren't required, thankfully they are.

I was more curious though where those kids DO go?  Are they homeschooled or something?
