Virginia--Prince William County Public Schools Letter to Homeschool
Parents


Dear Prince William County HSLDA member,

The Prince William County Public School District has sent a letter to
homeschool parents. We would like to offer some helpful
clarification.

1. Virginia law only requires you to send your immunization records
to the school district if the superintendent himself or herself
specifically requests the records from you. You are not required to
respond to a school district employee or assistant. If the
superintendent were to send you a valid request, you do not need to
use any specific form. If you have a religious objection to
immunizations, you may print off a religious exemption sheet from our
Virginia members-only web page at www.hslda.org. Have it notarized,
and send it to the school district superintendent, if you would like
your exemption to be documented. There is no penalty for not
submitting immunization information.

2. If you were to cease homeschooling for some reason, there is no
statutory requirement to notify the school district. While you can
notify the school district as a sensible courtesy, you do not need to
use any specific notification form.

I hope that this information is helpful to you as you prepare for the
2005-2006 school year. Please feel free to call my office at
540-338-5600 if you have any questions.

Sincerely,


Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney

"When I called Liberty to find out what kind of discount we could
get, they told us we would 10% off our car insurance and 5% off
our homeowner's insurance. What we will save is more than double
what it costs to join HSLDA. With one child getting his driver's
license this year, the savings will be a real blessing!"
