When a parent or guardian arrives to pick up their child(ren), they must go to the designated dismissal area to officially sign out their child. Only persons listed on the Parent Authorization Release Form that have a valid state or government issued photo I.D. will be allowed to pick up a child.
Child Custody: If the parental custody of a child changes for any length of time, the custodial parent is required to inform the staff in writing. Summer Prep also requires any updated court-ordered custodial documents and/or restraining orders. These documents will be kept in strict confidence.
