I have a close gf, whom I've known for 12 years. I totally trust her! But she sees my kids maybe once every 2 years. She doesn't work anymore and I have considered making her an emergency contact. I guess I will reacquaint her w/ kids before I do this! LOL

But I can see how this would happen on the part of the parent, friend and kid.

But the school is supposed to see ID and have a signed note from the parent if special pick up arrangements need to be made.
