Custody Issues

Please let the school know if there are custody orders concerning your children. We do not have the right to withhold a child from any parent having custody or joint custody. In order to deny a parent from picking up their child, there must be a current, signed court order stating that they should not have access to the child, and we must have a copy of the order in the child’s file.

The center cannot become involved in custody disputes; we cannot mediate or keep track of which parent can pick up on which days. We would be forced to disenroll a child if the school has to become involved in such disputes. If the parents of a child are separated/divorced and both are authorized to pick up, each parent may add his/her own additional pick-ups and contacts if necessary.
