Can I send my babysitter or nanny to pick up my child?
Yes, you can send a babysitter or nanny to pick up. You must first add the person to the list of emergency contacts in your child's file. Then, you must notify the office that someone other than a primary parent or guardian will be picking up on a given day. If a babysitter or nanny comes to pick up a child without a parent's written and verbal consent, we will contact a primary parent before releasing the child.
