Perham-Dent schools examine late lunch fee issue
PERHAM, Minn. - With delinquent school lunch payments mounting, Perham-Dent school officials are cooking up a new policy intended to limit free lunches without making kids go hungry.
In many cases, it isn't even an issue of parents not having the money, said Superintendent Tamara Uselman.
"More than anything, we have busy people who simply don't have time to monitor their lunch accounts," Uselman said. "We need to figure out a way to be faster with our notification."
