Well that was easier than I thought it'd be!

I took our exemption form up to my bank to be notarized. It was actually real simple! Filled it out there, he signed it, stamped it and I thanked him and went on my way.

Now to turn it in at the school.

Thankfully Iowa is a fairly easy state. I just have to say it's a 'sincere religious belief' they can't ask me 100 questions...just fill out the form...I'm just sure my itty bitty town hasn't dealt with it often so I'm hoping I don't get tons of guff from the school.

I just had my son's exemption form notarized yesterday, too It went smoothly, however I know the notary public. When I asked my son's school about their acceptance of the form, she was very compliant and friendly with me, so I'm assuming they have had their fair share in the past.

I didn't think to call the school. I figure it's a state form so they don't have a choice...

Awesome to hear. We homeschool so I've never had to deal with that. However, I get it in other areas. It's never fun worrying about what conflict might come up.

Re: Well that was easier than I thought it'd be!

I only had to fill out some forms at the school for the vax's we're not doing, but I have a feeling that won't be the end of it. My DS is almost fully vax'd but there are a few I'm not doing due to his reactions in the past. Last yr the school nurse called me about 3 or 4 times about not being able to read the dates clearly enough on their copies of his records for my 4th DS, even though he had them all. I got irritated by the 3rd call, the 4th one I was pretty p*ssed! So I'm hoping the papers I filled out will be enough, but I have a feeling I'll be getting a call in the next couple months about it. I have pictures to back up my reasoning though and will have my dr write a letter if I need to.

I'm glad it was easier than you thought!!

We public school, but Iowa requires the form for homeschoolers even.

I've heard of people having 'issues' with the notary and stuff but the guy just gave me a little bit of a weird look, but I think that's because our public health dept puts the religious & medical exemptions on the same form so he wasn't for sure what I was after LOL once I told him it was for the bottom half he filled it out and that was that. *phew*
