I hope the topic of free lunch and breakfasts along with other help to lower income residents comes up, they consider helping All Students!! As I pick up my grandson, I've met quite a few of the parents. Nice enough people but driving Mercedes, Lincoln and Cadillac SUVs, just about any vehicle we dream of owning! They've also told me where they live and quite a few live in 4-500,000 houses?? The kicker to this is I hear them talking about Free food, Free school supplies and Free field trips!! Doesn't the school system check out these parents before they let them participate in these Free Programs?? If my daughter and son-in-law didn't both work with me picking up the kids, they couldn't afford to even live here in OL.. I believe if you're going to give one child Free stuff, All the children should receive the same.. Whether it be lunch, supplies, or outings, we're the ones paying for all this too! I believe it's time for #122 to start taking care of All students Equally seeing how not All the parents are being Honest!!

@ Roy Rekosh..You missed my point.. I want All students to get the same benefits from the district..Whether it be food or other programs..If this would happen, there would be no reason for judging...This would put all the kids on the same platform and not having my grandkids asking why the others get free stuff and they can't.. As far as you said a lot of the Big Rollers(as you put it) such as yourself went broke with the economy bust, why don't you think on it and don't judge us..We are the honest working families that lived within our means and continue to survive the same way! Just because you lived the high life, don't expect us to pay your way..Sell your toys and expensive houses and live within your means!!
