The meal payment plan policy at Ayersville Local Schools has come under the microscope this week following some parent’s Facebook posts.
Daniel Starr posted online [QUOTE] “My children came home on Monday to tell me that they were pulled out of the lunch line and told that they would not eat today (Monday).” He said that a total of 24 students were pulled from the lunch line that day because of lack of money in the students’ lunch debit system.
School officials counter that parental notification of low lunch balance should be made by email. Officials say when a student’s account reaches a certain low balance (designated by the parents), the child is handed a low balance receipt to take home to the parents. In addition, parents get an email to notify them about the balance.
Apparently, some parents are not getting the emails. The school says it will work on that.
