You don’t have to have the same last name to sign school documents.  My youngest was born before my husband and I were married, so she has always had his last name and I have a different last name.  I can still sign everything with my last name because it is my legal name and because I am her mother.  As soon as I change my name my oldest daughter will have a different last name than me because I will take my husband’s name and she will still have my maiden name.  I will still have no problem signing documents.

@aubrav: You don’t have to prove that you are their mother since you have a different name?

Oh, I guess that would be something you would have to ask the school.  I don’t know if they require your legal name or if you would be able to add in the hyphenated name with no problem.

@MissAsB: When I register them for school they have to have the birth certificate which proves that I am their mother.
