Hello, my DD will be 5 next month. She starts school this fall. I have always thought I would homeschool my children but my DD is very set on wanting to attend public school like her older half sister. She is excited and I want to give her that experience, even if it's only for the first few years. We do not vaccinate at all. Her Doctor seems supportive and only pressed the issue at her very first appointment when we switched to him at a year old. He never again question my decision for her or her brother. I want to be sure I have an outstanding letter to submit to the school. I have anxiety issues sometimes and I do not like conflict so I want to just bypass all the drama and feel confident in the letter. I am absolutely confident in my decision not to vaccinate but we all know how that goes with people very closed minded. So help me please! I live in PA. We have 2 exemptions, religious and medical. I will be going the religious route. What will I need and what can I expect to in counter going this way. Thanks so much for your help ladies!

It looks pretty basic. All you have to do is say you object because vaccinations contradict your religious beliefs. They can't question you about your religious beliefs.
