What Field is for Parent/Guardian First Name?

I need to pull a search/report (quick export) with the parent/guardian first name, last name and middle name if available. I can't find a field that shows this information. 
The following 3 fields appear with blanks when I try to export the data from my search:
StudentCoreFields.guardian_fn
StudentCoreFields.guardian_mn
StudentCoreFields.guardian_ln

 

There is no field for contact's first and last name under a search for "contact."

You would need to use Contact DATs in a Quick Export, because contacts are in a schema that's more complex out of necessity.

EDIT TO ADD: assuming your district has migrated from Legacy Contacts, that is.
