Students Without Proper Shots to be Sent Home

Associated Press - November 9, 2015 6:55 am

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita students who aren’t up to date on required immunizations will be excluded from school next week.

Beginning Nov. 16, students in the Wichita school district will be pulled out of class and told they are not allowed to return to school until their immunizations are up to date.

Wichita Public Schools Health Services Coordinator Kimber Kasitz says 2,000 students were not in compliance with vaccine requests as of Friday.

Officials say school nurses have been notifying parents about the requirements through letters, phone calls, emails and parent-teacher conferences.

Kansas schools will allow an unvaccinated child to attend class if the child’s health is threatened by receiving a vaccine or if one is opposed to vaccinations because of religious beliefs.

Better they be sent home than they be injected with mercury, aluminum, and other toxins, and be sent to a Nursing Home for the rest of their lives…

Okay, and if they are sent home and do not receive the “proper” vaccinations, will they be declared truant by the school board or the state of Kansas? Kind of a roundabout way for the schools to control what someone puts into their body, no?
