CIJS will only ensure that any person picking up is authorized according to the pickup list.  If a parent/guardian who is not listed or believes the information provided is inaccurate, they must provide a copy of “court order” supporting documentation to correct the form.  The Pick-up Permission form will be updated and certified annually.
