Step parent on school contact/pickup list
Wondering who here is listed as an authorized school contact/pickup for your step kids? Do you find it appropriate for a stepparent to be on the list?
DH and BM are in the same school district, 50/50 custody, so they informally switch off registering the SKs. DH always lists me as a third authorized contact at registration. I don't think BM has ever actively removed me from the list, but she pointedly lists only her mother (who is elderly and doesn't live in the area) as a third contact when she completes registration.
Re: pickups, contact lists are pretty meaningless with teenage kids with their own cell phones, especially in Covid times. But still, in my mind, *eyeroll* to a petty power play, as I'm obviously assisting with schlepping kids around.
Some may disagree though: SPs as school contacts is overstepping or asking for trouble. Thoughts?
