A principal in Pennsylvania ordered pizza for 400 students when the cafeteria workers did not show up.
Weir Mitchell Elementary School in Philadelphia provides free breakfast and lunch for its students, but school officials were left scrambling because there was nobody to prepare or serve the food. Prinicpal Stephanie Andrewlevich took matters into her own hands and ordered pizza from local restaurants.
"As soon as the stores opened, I ordered pizza for 400 students to attempt lunch service," Andrewlevich said in a letter to parents. The pizzas didn't arrive until later in the day which means many students went the whole day without eating which upset alot of parents.
"When we were leaving school, they were complaining they were hungry, they didn't eat all day," parent Sherrae Jackson said. "And I was very upset because I should have gotten a phone call."
Another parent was angry that the school didn't reach out about the issue earlier in the day.
