Bomb Threat - Restitution

  1. Last week our High School had a bomb threat in the morning. I believe a note was found in a bathroom. The school was evacuated immediately and the kids sent home early. The Lunch Ladies had to leave immediately, without putting the food away. The staff was not allowed back in the building until late in the afternoon.

    What happened to all the food that was out and being prepped? Into the trash it went!  It had been out all day and the Board of Health regulation is after being out four hours, it must be thrown out. I would say anything after two hours could be compromised and should be thrown out.

    I hope they can get restitution from the individual who caused the chaos. I don't know how much the food that was thrown out cost, but I would bet it would be hundreds if not a thousand dollars worth of food.

    Did the individual think about Food Service when they left that note? Of course not! This time of the year, we are ordering the least amount of food as possible, in hopes of using everything we have before the end of our school year. Budgets are tight! My boss said "It made me sick to be throwing out all that food."

    It makes us all sick to think that someone would do such a cowardly act. An act without consideration of others, an act that impacted the lives of so many. An act that costs the school district and Food Service dollars.

    I don't have a child in that school but if I did, I would have been sick with worry for my child's safety. We were all worried about the safety of the kids and staff.

    This time of the year is always crazy. The students are restless, the staff is in need of the summer break and budget dollars are thin. I hope Food Service will pursue restitution against the offender. Not that the money will ever be repaid but it will send a message that says, "You will be held accountable for not only the malicious act against the staff and students but also for the extra dollars you caused to go literally down the drain."

    It's a jungle out there this time of the year. Be safe my friends!
yes who ever wrote the note should have to pay.it is sure a zoo around our school this time of year too.

Anecdote of the Week
Ode to the Lunch Lady - Submitted Jane Broberg

We toil and sweat in the middle school kitchen.
With laughter, tears, and even some bitchin...
Is it the generous pay you ask?
Why heavens no, please pass the flask.

We ove our jobs for many a reason.
But #1 is the summertime season!
The smells, the clatter and constant chatter
And the children's smiles are what really matter.

Ovens wafting with the smell of homemade bread,
Or do you prefer the aroma of chocolate chip cookies instead?
Chicken nuggets, spaghetti and sloppy Joes,
To find out kitchen, just follow your nose.

The government would like to spoil our fun,
Their ever changing rules have us under the gun.
What temp did you say the pizza should be?
What size scoop goes in the peas?

Bruises, cuts and too many burns,
When it comes to these we all take turns,
Shredded fingernails and aching feet,
Without these, our day wouldn't be complete.
We feel we have the best job there could ever be,
Because we work with such wonderful ladies you see!

Lunch Lady Poem

We love the hairnets, the aprons and smiles.

The meals that you cook keep us going for miles.

Buts it's not just the meals; it's your kindness and care.

We think you are wonderful and love the meals you prepare.
