Timberlane superintendent apologizes for lunch policy mistake that prevented food purchase on credit
The Timberlane Regional School District policy states that high school students can charge a la carte items at the cafeteria as long as they have less than $20 of debt.
"I've spoke to (superintendent Earl) Metzler four times this year about my daughter being denied something when the policy states that it goes to negative $20," said Kimberly Budreau. "She has never been at negative $20; she has been at zero, negative 10 cents and negative $1.10. And she happens to be a type I diabetic, but whether she was or not, I'd be frustrated about the policies you choose to adhere to and the ones you do not."
"We looked at the a la carte items at the high school, and students are able to charge up to $20," said Metzler.
Metzler apologized for the incident and said he would remain on top of making sure the high school follows the policy.
Metzler said he spoke to the food services department at the high school last year and told them that Budreau's daughter is diabetic should not be denied juice or water no matter what her balance is.
