The recent enforcement of a local school’s lunch payment policy has some parents asking questions.
This morning, parents at Mancelona Public Schools began voicing their concerns over some students not receiving a hot lunch.
The schools says less than ten students at Mancelona High School received an alternative lunch due to their outstanding food balance.
9&10’s Caroline Powers and photojournalist Jeremy Erickson found out more about the school’s policy and how parents want things resolved.
“It was very small and isolated yesterday. Not many at all.”
A current outstanding food balance of more than $16,000 prompted Mancelona Public Schools to implement their alternative lunch.
