School sends child home with ‘lunch money please’ sticker
A California mom is upset after her son came home from school with a sticker on his shirt.
Kim Segaline noticed the “Lunch money please” sticker on her 7-year-old son last week.
Preston, a student at Bonsall West Elementary School, told her the lunch lady put it on him for her to see.
Preston has been eligible for free lunch at the school for the past two years, so Segaline was confused as to why he now needed money for lunch. Segaline, who told Opposing Views she was shocked that the school would make her son wear a sticker that publicized her family’s financial situation, called the school to ask about their sticker policy. A member of the food services staff told Segaline that she needed to fill out another form for this school year if Preston was to continue receiving free lunch.
Segaline plans to fill out the form, but still feels the school shouldn’t have placed a sticker on her son. She says they could have sent a note with him instead. The school says that when kids are sent home with notes, they often misplace them.
What do you think about the school placing a sticker on Preston?
Did they go too far?
