Lunch ladies discipline students
You may have heard of one state’s slogan “Don’t Mess with Texas.” The same message applies at Atlantic City High School in New Jersey. The school has three lunch periods in the cafeteria. During one of them in April, 2010, a cell phone coordinated food fight broke out leaving a mess to be cleaned up.
The cafeteria workers decided to punish the group by serving only dry, cheese sandwiches for two days. The students weren’t required to eat the sandwiches, but nothing else was served those days. Some parents protested the “revenge of the lunch ladies,” calling the meal “prison food.” The school superintendent responded that in the past when a food fight happened, serving a basic food meal was the discipline used and got the students’ attention. Sometimes a reminder about respect for school employees and others is needed.
So, don’t mess with the lunch ladies at your school!!
