Letter to School Basics

A Letter to School notifies your child's school that you have given a caretaker temporary authority over your children. This letter can be used if you need a friend, babysitter, or anyone else to pick your child up from school. Schools adhere to strict rules and regulations and need to be notified if someone aside from a parent is picking up a child. A Letter to School gives you authority to designate who can, and can't, act as a temporary caretaker for your children.

Use the Letter to School document if:

  • You want to give someone temporary authority over your kids at school.
  • You're giving the school a list of who can pick up your children.

Schools need clearance to release your children into the care of another, no matter if it's family or close friends. A Letter to School lets the school know just who's allowed to provide care for your kids. Your grant of power through this document can be specific and you can limit a caretaker's authority fit your needs. Completing a Letter to School ahead of time can ensure you're prepared if you can't pick your child up from school.
