  •  Was happening here, too, in another form (0+ / 0-)

    After a hue and cry, the students were being given a cheese sandwich -- they were otherwise going to have nothing.

    I offered the school nurse $50 to cover as many children as possible during the "donut hole" till their forms returned to the school so they could start getting the regular food. He turned it down.

    He also said there were new FED rules that said the office employees couldn't read and review the "Free food" applications. That meant forms go in, and a lot are turned down for simple errors. Then the parent has to be called by school to fix, send the form in again.

    This is to maintain privacy for the parent/ child, that the forms can't be read in the beginning. On what planet does this make sense? The school employee will know everything if the form comes back.

    Be good to each other. It matters.
