Hey Jr. High Student… “No Lunch For You”
As a parent of children still in the school system I have a rant I need to go on. What if our child called you and said that he wasn’t going to get to eat lunch at school today because his account was negative and he forgot to tell you.
Now keep in mind, I get that it is a negative balance, he should have told me sooner, with that being said it was only $20!
After trying to see if we could pay with a credit card or debit card and told they don’t accept those, I then offered to bring a check by later in the afternoon.
I was at work, and I don’t know about anyone else, but my boss frowns on me just dropping everything when I am on their time and handling personal things.
I was told that my child would not be allowed to eat lunch unless I had the $20 before lunch.
Just so you know this was NOT School District 2.
Time to visualize my expression (eyes flashing and head spinning around) I somewhat calmly asked if they were kidding me?
They were not going to feed my child when he was at school, was I hearing them correctly, right after I told them I would hand deliver the money, just not right at that moment?
Oh yes that is what she said, they would not feed him lunch.
I calmly (well some what calmly) asked her if I misunderstood the First Lady Michelle Obama?
Did she not go around the US pushing the agenda that that lunch was an important part of the day for a student and that our children needed to eat better at school and it was their mission to make sure that school children had the nourishment they needed while at school.
Well needless to say, my son ate lunch and I will be delivery a check for the amount when I get off work.
Has this ever happened to you?
