Around this time of year we hear sometimes apocryphal and sometimes real stories of schools threatening to refer a parent to CPS if they opt out. This is a hollow threat and should not be given any credence. A number of years ago we raised this directly with CPS and received confirmation that they do not investigate such reports.
