Thank you for your question.
Generally an educational institution will require proof of guardianship or custody before they will allow a child to be enrolled in school. It is left to the discretion of the school as to what form of documentation they require; however, legally they have the right (and have had the right) to ensure that they obtain proper documentation from the court system to ensure that legal guardianship has been conferred upon you.
If you go into the court on and ex parte (emergency unnoticed) motion, you should be able to obtain your letter in time.
