Seattle Public Schools sent out a warning to parents that thousands of students could be banned from returning to school after Christmas break if they are not up to date on their vaccinations. “Personal” or “philosophical” exemptions for the MMR vaccine were eliminated by Washington state lawmakers in May of 2019.

A notice sent to parents by Seattle Public Schools warns that thousands of students could be banned from returning to school after Christmas break if they are not up to date on their vaccinations.

The school district’s notice reads, “Student records must reflect updated immunization status by January 8, 2020, or students cannot attend school until the required information is provided to the school nurse.”

“Personal” or “philosophical” exemptions for the MMR vaccine were eliminated by state lawmakers in May of 2019.

The MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine is the main immunization the school district is focusing on before allowing students to return to class.

To assist families who may not be able to afford the shots, the district is offering free immunization clinics over the holiday break to help students get in compliance with the mandatory vaccination laws.

So keep ALL those thousands of students home until the school/state/indoctrination centers say “UNCLE”!!

The school systems get their funding by the number of students. If they have thousands fewer students, that will KILL THE SCHOOL BUDGETS!!

Do NOT put your children’s health at risk for possible LIFETIME problems like my children have. My wife got a vaccination almost 30 years ago and had a serious issue then and still has problems with that arm even NOW!!

Hey, logical THINKING Seattle residents – get your kids OUT of the P.S. system. If you have to work 2 jobs to pay the tuition, your child’s minds are worth that.
