upsetting for them," said Lukes.
I completely agree. Is it really that difficult to call the parents later?
Something similar happened to me in 1st or 2nd grade. I forgot to bring my lunch money ($1.50) and they wouldn't give me anything. I remember being so embarrassed and not to mention, hungry. That was the only time I forgot to bring money. It wasn't like I was a "habitual offender".

A Utah cafeteria manager was placed on administrative leave and a school district apologized Thursday after lunches were seized from the hands of hungry elementary school students who had run out of lunch money

Well, you gotta wonder why school lunch isnt FREE to ALL students across the board, esp if they arent allowed to bring in their OWN lunches.
They should make it free for all students, have it come out of taxes or something, I dont know.
