Approval to pick children up from school


When both parents have joint legal custody, does the non custodial parent need permission to pick children up from school on a case by case or day by day basis ? My custody time does not begin when they get out of school during the week, but there are occasions where I have been asked to take them to appointments or may need to get them in some emergency situation. As their parent, should I be on the school’s list of people approved to pick them up, or does the custodial parent need to inform them its OK on a day by day basis ?


You should be allowed to pick the children up from school.
