I saw an article on-line which said “Jolly Rancher lands Brazos ISD third-grader in detention for a week”.
ORCHARD, Texas – A third-grader at Brazos Elementary was given a week’s detention for possessing a Jolly Rancher. School officials in Brazos County are defending the seemingly harsh sentence. The school’s principal and superintendent said they were simply complying with a state law that limits junk food in schools.
It goes on to say “Jack Ellis, the superintendent for Brazos Independent School District, declined an on-camera interview. But he said the school was abiding by a state guideline that banned “minimal nutrition” foods.”
Her detention is to be separated from other students during lunch and recess through Friday.
I wondered what her school lunch options were? What kind of meals did the school district provide for her?
It just so happens they provide their school lunch menu on-line.
Monday April 5th
Breakfast – Pop Tarts.
Lunch – Corn Dog, Mixed veg, Mac and Cheese, fruit.
Wednesday April 14th
Breakfast – Breakfast taco
Lunch – Soft Taco, Salad, Corn, Fruit and Rice Krispy
Other breakfast items were Blueberry muffin, Pancake wrap, and Breakfast pizza. Other lunch items were Sausage pizza, Fish nuggets and fries, Chicken Nuggets, and something called a “Crispito”. You can find their lunch menu here.
I for one am glad they took away this little girl’s Jolly Rancher, stuffed a Pop Tart in her mouth, and made her sit in the corner and eat it all by herself. That will teach her a valuable lesson on nutrition she will carry with her for a lifetime.
Good for you Brazos Elementary School…
…you fucking retards.
