So I tried to make a link with my phone and copy / paste the article not sure how it turned out but basically I have witnessed children get turned away for no shots. Apparently I am not the only one does your school have this policy?

Get immunized: school nurses say, "no shots, no school"

GRAYSON COUNTY, TEXAS -- Many North Texas kids are less than a week away from the first day of school. Parents need to know there is one thing that students must have before they go back, or they'll get turned away.

Texas school nurses's mantra is "No shots, no school."

One local school nurse says she has had to send kids back home on the first day of school because they didn't have all of their shots.

Van Alstyne school nurse Cynthia Tillet says right now, school nurses across Texoma are checking to make sure your kids have all of their immunizations.

She says many schools have already hosted their immunization clinics, so if you haven't gotten all your shots, visit your family doctor, a walk-in medical clinic, or the health department.

Tillet says many insurance companies cover the cost of required shots.

"We just ask that they try to get their shots in before school so we can't say, 'No, you can't come until you go,'" Tillet said.

Kids K through 12 need to get their shots,but if you have a 7th grader, you need to pay special attention to his or her shot record.

When kids reach 7th grade, they are required to get the meningitis shot for the first time.

That's a fairly new rule that was put in place about two years ago.

For more information on Texas's immunization requirements, visit www.ImmunizeTexas.com or call 800-252-9152.

Parents: Know your rights!!  You DO NOT have to immunize your child(ren) for them to attend school.  In Texas, all you have to do is properly fill out and submit an "Exemption from Immunization for Reasons of Conscience" form.

Hi. We are currently trying to decide whether or not to have our four year old daughter receive her second round of mmr and varicella vaccinations, due to the risks therein, which we've discovered recently. I noticed that with serologic proof of immunity, the shots are not required. I don't see our daughter allowing the lab to take blood, as she'd likely throw a fit about it. What do you do? If you don't immunize, do you do something else to prevent these illnesses? I've read about homeopathy, but the research seems inconclusi

idk, I guess I don't see anything wrong with it.  There are always private schools if you are really against the vacs.

 They do this scare tactic thing every single year, everywhere.  They want you to quake in fear that your kid will drop dead immediately upon entrance to school if he doesn't have one of the 50+ doses of everything they want them to have.

In Texas it is so easy to get an exemption for, however if you don't have the exemtption form or the fax records the nurse can kick your child out until one is provided.

That's how it is in my children's school, unless it is against your religious beliefs.
