exempt letter on place of worship letterhead?
Tue Jul 1, 2008 22:05 (XFF:

Hello All,
My child is not vaccinated. I've submitted a letter requesting religious exemption upon request from her daycare. They returned the letter stating that it had to be on letterhead from our place of worship. I will submit a letter stating I am unable to obtain anything on letterhead.

I am aware of the Wexler decision prevents the State from limiting religious exemption to bona-fide members of a religious organization. Why the letterhead request?

Has anyone else received this request?

          Thanks for answering. I think everyone should post their positive results so parents can see how easy it is to request an exemption.
