Beginning February 1, 2013, no student will be permitted to charge a meal who has charged their maximum amount of meals allowed until full payment of charges owed is received. Do you think this is Right? Denyiny Students of lunch!

I agree, what would happen if the child is taught to charge, charge, charge and never pay back. lunches cost someone money and I think that's good to allow them to charge so many, they are trusted and taught to pay what is owed.

No, I think thy shouldn't charge anyone for the crap food that they serve in school now. The food may be healthy but it's completely nasty, the fact that they want to charge people for that stuff is ridiculous. Legally thy cannot deny students food at lunch.

It's not the kids fault if they don't have lunch money, the parents are responsible. If the parents can't afford it then they should send a bag lunch.

Some kids in this area only eat when they're at school. It's pretty sad they'll now be denied lunch or breakfast. Especially considering all the construction blazer has been doing. It doesn't teach the kids ANYTHING to not get their lunch. As matter of fact- All this is going to do is make kids less focused in class. A full stomach helps you focus and stay awake. I think the tall waters they sell for $1.50 should either be free or alot cheaper, because that is the best thing kids can have with their lunch. People wonder why we're so stupid around here. Why do you think?!

Fully agree but there are also points on both sides. lets not pretend that these kids come from homes with hard working parnts that just cant find jobs. That might be the case with some but alot of these kids come from families that abuse the system and live a lifestyle that exsists off of handouts. sometimes lessons in life are hard. teaching these kids that credit and handouts are the way to go only enforces the white trash culture!

Have you seen how fat the poor are in this area? Nobody is going without eating in this area. Maybe a really old person, but they don't count for anything.[QUOTE who="opinion#9"]Some kids in this area only eat when they're at school. It's pretty sad they'll now be denied lunch or breakfast.

No student, no matter what their parents income, should be denied Breakfast or Lunch at school.

LOL, really why is that? Schools are not secondary parents. there places where students go to get an education. Lunch time is a break to eat. when and why did it become the responsibility of an educational institution to feed students. Parents raise children and look out for there well being clothes, food. Schools educate children.

No they aren't supposed to feed students, that is the parents responsibility. However some parents don't feed their kids, and how else are the kids supposed to eat? I mean would like it so the schools didn't need to feed children but our world isn't perfect.

I see your point, but you shouldn't punish a child for the mistakes of their parents. All it's going to do is embarrass the child who can't afford lunch. Regardless of how their parents are they deserve a full stomach like any other child does. They should be thought how to take care of themselves and make something of their life, but not by being denied food. That's just cruel.

That's because salads are 5$ while burgers are $.99. If they would change that around, plant a few community fruit and veggie gardens, and TRY for a healthier community we would have it. You're right, though. Some around here are fat just because the choose to sit around eating $.99 burgers all day. A walk never hurt anyone. If we all came together as a community this town could be amazing. No one cares enough to.

I agree with you! It's not about being snotty when it comes to the well being of a child.

again, not the schools responsibility. if i child cant bring or afford lunch the school should contact child services. the tax dollars i pay are for the children to learn math, science, english and so on. not to feed the children of losers. by simply feeding them you are not solving the problem. if a parent cant care for there child the child needs to be removed from the home

i have two children that attend summitt elementary, and me and their father are working parents. My children do get the reduced meals rate, and there have been a few days here and there that i wasnt able to send money w/them b/c of my husband been laid off and waiting 3 wks to get unemployment ck, we struggled to keep bills pd up. But both of my kids have a balance due on their accounts and nothing has been said to me or i have not recieved any letters stating they wont b able to eat. Schools cannot legally do that!! But i havent recieved a statement with amount due. I dont know how they do it at the high school, but i would have my parents talk to the school board or someone higher than the principal and see what the law is on charged lunches and etc!!!

Someone did tell me not too long ago that at an area school district that if kids had a balance due that the kids had to have cold lunches and breakfast, rather than a hot meal!! Meaning get cereal instead of biscuits and gravy, or a cold cut sandwhich instead of pizza. I dont think thats right to single them out like that, theres too much bullying goin on in all grades and thats just one more thing for kids to get bullied about!!!
