(ABCNEWS.GO) — Parents in the Spokane, Washington, school district were warned this day would come. And now the school district has kept its promise to pull all students from class who aren’t compliant with state vaccination laws.
As of Monday, nearly 1,000 students who either did not submit records proving their shots were current or did not sign an exemption waiver were expelled, Spokane school district spokesman Kevin Morrison told ABC News, adding that the numbers are not yet available for today.
Morrison said the school district had been calling and emailing parents since February to let them know about the upcoming expulsions. To help parents get their kids up to date and return to the classroom, the school district has been holding free vaccination clinics in various public schools, Morrison said. They also have made exemption waivers readily available for parents who don’t want their kids to get the shots, he said.
