An Ohio elementary school student had his hot lunch taken away and was given a cheese sandwich instead because he had a $9.75 unpaid balance. Jefferson Sharpnack, who’s 9, had a hot lunch that included cheese sticks and sauce at Green Primary School in Uniontown, Ohio. It was taken away on a day last week that happened to be Jefferson’s birthday.
… Jefferson’s grandmother said she had received a letter from the school saying that the boy had an unpaid balance of $9.75, which she said she had arranged to pay with a check. But when her grandson went to school, he was denied the hot lunch because of the balance.
