1. No, but the if the children are not immunized, when they attend school, and there is an outbreak, they will be sent home. In Ontario it appears that is a requirement and proof is needed.

"If your child requires an exemption from the immunization requirements for school attendance, please speak to your local public health unit. Children who are exempt from immunization are at increased risk of disease and may be removed from school during a disease outbreak. "
