Private school in Miami will not allow their teachers to be vaccinated

That’s not how the virus spreads and parents should be concerned if the folks running their kids’ school are that fucking stupid.


Reminds me of Maeby Fünke’s fictitious hippie school from Arrested Development except way less funny.



Aside from the total idiocy, I think this is illegal under HIPAA privacy laws…anyone know?


On one hand, these people are idiots. On the other hand, they’re still idiots.


Er… why are they teaching kids to become emotional assassins?

I was going to ask ‘how’ but ‘why’ seems more pertinent.


What’s to stop the teachers just keeping their mouths shut about their vaccination status? Don’t ask don’t tell all over again…


The policy has some parents looking for a new school.

I do hope Muffy & Buffy get a nicey nice school to go to, I just can’t believe this is what it’s all come to, boo f’ing hoo. /s


Wait, what . . .?

Anecdotally, tens of thousands of women all over the world have recently been reporting adverse reproductive issues simply from being in close proximity with those who have received any one of the COVID-19 injections, e.g., irregular menses, bleeding, miscarriages, post-menopausal hemorrhaging, and amenorrhea (complete loss of menstruation).

I think I’m pretty well-read, news-wise, and I’ve not heard this one at all. And I’m dealing with anti-vax relatives. If anyone was going to vomit this up, it’d have been them. Is this really a talking point?


Its illegal. Employers are not entitled to personal medical information on their employees.


I wonder what the science curriculum looks like at this school.


I found it, look below…


I’m afraid so. Someone recently sent me this link making that claim. (I haven’t read it yet, but I’m assuming it’s based on a collection of anecdotal claims)

ETA: I got that link confused with another link I was sent, which was for a video (which I haven’t watched and won’t bother linking to) that apparently makes claims about people having side effects just from being in proximity to vaccinated folks. I have no idea what the supposed mechanism for that would even be.


GTFO, private schools close if there’s an inch of rain and get paid just the same. Don’t act like you gave a fuck about the students or their families; you clearly still don’t.


Sort of. In the US:

An employer may ask a job applicant whether they can perform the job and how they would perform the job. The law allows an employer to condition a job offer on the applicant answering certain medical questions or successfully passing a medical exam, but only if all new employees in the same job have to answer the questions or take the exam.

Once a person is hired and has started work, an employer generally can only ask medical questions or require a medical exam if the employer needs medical documentation to support an employee’s request for an accommodation or if the employer has reason to believe an employee would not be able to perform a job successfully or safely because of a medical condition.

And, honestly, a really good HR person can wiggle medical information out of most people with just the right set of innocuous questions.


The school touts itself as Anti-Vax


Yeah, the entire NYC schools system also shut down March 15. Seattle schools closed March 11, Northshore district in Washington state closed March 5. But Centner was definitely one of the first.

If I worked at this school I’d get my frikkin’ vaccine and not tell my boss or admins. And quietly start a convo with an employment lawyer.


OH, you didn’t SAY the stats were provided by the National Vaccine Information Center (! whose co-founder, noted medical specialist Barbara Loe Fisher, graduated with a BA in English! well of course all those statistics have to be based on science and not some anonymous bullshit by a published anti-vaxxer. hey parents – save yourselves 30K and get your kids out of that school ASAP.


Isn’t this why the CDC recommends maintaining 6 feet of distance between vaccinated individuals and the menstrual hut?


Haha! Yes, by their logic, I could argue I was immune to capitalism until my early teens, then my immunity wore off. It caused painful monthly cramps and bleeding, and has been going on ever since. :woman_facepalming:t2:
Idiots gonna idiot.
And any parent that sent their kid to a school that touted their anti-fax (ha, auto-correct made it more accurate!) policy had to have some inkling what they were getting into in terms of the mentality of the people running the place.
