No one has a right to a child’s records other than the custodial parent or legal guardian.
If there is a court order specifying the rights and responsibilities of individual parents, it is the responsibility of the custodial parent to provide the school with an official copy of the court order. The custodial parent may wish to supply the principal with the “custody section” of the divorce decree if it contains information, which may be useful to the School in fulfilling its obligations.
PICK-UP FROM SCHOOL
The school will permit only the custodial parent, or his/her designee, to pick-up the child(dren) during or at the end of the school day. The non-custodial parent will not be permitted to remove the child from school during or at the end of the school day, unless there is written authorization from the custodial parent.
