You can file for modification to the parenting plan.

Custody is subject to modification at any time there is a substantial change in circumstances that affects the best interest of the child. All matters involving children are determined according to what the court divines to be the best interest of the child. The child's commencement of kindergarten would suffice as such a substantial change in circumstances to warrant a modification.
