    time to get outraged

    As many as 40 students at Uintah Elementary in Salt Lake City had their lunches—which they'd already received from the cafeteria—seized and trashed by school authorities because their parents were behind on payments.

    According to Jason Olsen, a Salt Lake City District spokesman, the child-nutrition department realized some students' families had outstanding balances on Monday, but the department's manager wasn't able to notify the school until after lunch had been served on Tuesday. So the department did what any humane, understanding person would do: they snatched the meals from the children and threw them in the trash.

    "It was pretty traumatic and humiliating," Erica Lukes, one of the children's mother, told the Salt Lake Tribune. "I think it's despicable. These are young children that shouldn't be punished or humiliated for something the parents obviously need to clear up."

    Olsen said school authorities attempted to contact parents about the debt on Monday and Tuesday morning but failed to reach them all before Tuesday's lunch period.

    "Something's not working, and that's what the school and child-nutrition department are going to work on together," Olsen said. "This can be easily prevented."

    He stopped short of apologizing,though, saying only, "If students were humiliated and upset that's very unfortunate and not what we wanted to happen."

    But a lengthy apology was later posted to the district's Facebook page.

    "This situation could have and should have been handled in a different manner. We apologize," the post reads. "We understand the feelings of upset parents and students who say this was an embarrassing and humiliating situation."

    I think long gone are the days of sending your kids to school with lunch money. They have accounts now, at least I hear my friends bitching about this kind of shit on facebook all the time because they forget to pay up or something like that.

    Too bad they can't even bring their own lunches anymore for fear of improper nutrition or "allergies"

    Fucking ridiculous...sounds like gestapo tactics to me. Lunch lady Doris putting the hammer down.

    They should have just let them all have a massive food fight.

    I bet Olsen is a magic under-wearer.

    If the official state/cultural stance is to encourage people to have 6 kids, you better be prepared to pay for their lunches!

    Is this better or worse than the Fire department that let someone's home burn down because they hadn't paid their property taxes?

    My kids best friend can need an ambulance if just peanut dust is in the air.
    He's been to the hospital five times in six years.

    Short of some kind of Planters/Skippy agro/industrial complex does that happen often.

    The "cure" seems a bit obvious to me.

    Every day they were given a peanut protein powder - starting off on a dose equivalent to one 70th of a peanut.

    The theory was that patients started at the extremely low dose, well below the threshold for an allergic response.
    My allergic dog ()not peanuts) gets pretty much the same treatment. For years now.

    Left my wallet in the car in Calgary and some nice hot Canadian chica bought my coffee. She said she saved a ton of money on her medical insurance by switching to DDblows.

    ^^^ allergy tables, separate the kids. inspect snacks for any room party.

    I don't work at a school, but wifey is hot school nurse and I get to listen to her bitch about admin, kids, teachers, and parents.

    back to op, root cause is lazy parents. pay up on time or if no bank, sign up for free or reduced. school handled poorly though but it is the parents responsibility to provide for their young

    I don't either. Only thing we ever got was a ban on PBJs.

    Yeah, in reality, no ban here of any sort. Even on PBJ's. the burden is on Garret not exposing himself to it, not the general environment. But this is Wyoming.
