At the end of the day, the child must be picked up on the school grounds by an authorized person who is listed on the Emergency Information form. The program can release a child only to the parents or legal guardian(s) of the child, or to individuals authorized to pick up the child whom the parent or guardian has listed on the school’s Emergency Information form. Staff members of the school may require any person who arrives to pick up a child to show identification. All persons authorized to pick up a child must be at least sixteen (16) years old.
If only one parent has custody of the child and the other is not authorized to pick up the child, the authorized parent must instruct the school of this fact, and must provide the program director with a certified copy of the Court Order confirming that one parent does not have visitation rights. If there is any change in the legal custody of the child while the child is enrolled in the program, the parent must immediately notify the school, and must provide the program director with a certified copy of the Court Order confirming the change in custody. If an unauthorized person arrives at the school to pick up a child, the school staff on-duty at the time will notify the parent immediately.
