@keeping it real, how exactly did I get vulgar? By stating the truth? That there are "mother's" in Hellertown who are making their living on their knees, or that there are big fat bullies on the bus overpowering the younger, smaller, kids and taking what ever they want. It's not vulgar hon, it's life. Wake up and smell the coffee.

@ all of you, if I had a child or grandchild in those schools and I knew that they had a practice in place called "forgotten lunch", I would be at every freaking school board meeting, on every person who was running for the school board, after every parent, every clergy member in the town and township, which I believe considers itself to be mostly "Christians", and demand that this practice stop. You might just as well take those kids strip them down to their underwear and make them stand on a table in the middle of the lunch room because that is how much you are embarrassing and shaming them, and for what? So a bunch of priggy adults can talk about the kid not having their lunch money. Right here, right now, I will say without knowing one single teacher, administrator, school board member that I am embarrassed and ashamed that my tax dollars are contributing to the denigration of a child, 8 or 18, angel or hoodlum. I feel nothing but disgust for every person employed by the SVSD who knows of this policy and has done nothing about it. You may be good teachers, but your indifference makes you all bad people. I truly hope you understand Karma, because she is coming for all of you.

@Walter.... agree the teacher's union is a factor, a big factor but when you talk buses, kids teaching kids, lunch issues, front office attitudes etc. those are admin decisions and deserve some scrutiny and we are talking about if admin has earned 3%

And the cocks crow Walter, because that is all they can do.

@busybody....all because a kid gets a cheese sandwich?! I don't get it. Do you think a child who doesn't hasnt had money in their account for several days but has been getting regular lunches should be given nothing, or be given a regular lunch?
