Full signatures are required; no initials or nick names can be accepted. Persons authorized to pick up my child other than the above parent or guardians: (Only those persons with a white pickup card and/or listed will be able to pick up your child.) (Children cannot be released to persons under 16 years of age.) List as many possible names and remember if you have more than one job you should list them all.
