Substitute Teacher Sends Parents A Stern Note Scolding Them For Their Daughter’s ‘Unhealthy’ Packed Lunch [VIDEO]
If you're like me, you probably pack a lot of school lunches. My kids have been picky, especially in their younger years, so I make sure they have food I know they will eat. Sometimes, it may not be the healthiest choices, but at least they eat right?
Well...one Missouri dad was shocked to receive a letter from his daughter's substitute teacher telling him he had packed her a lunch that was too unhealthy. - unfortunately for the school, dad's a family doctor!
The girl's father Justin Puckett, posted the letter, written on orange paper to his Facebook, outraged at the 'Big Brother' approach from the Kirksville Primary School teacher.
Puckett, packed his daughter a lunch that consisted of ham slices, pickles, marshmallows and chocolate. Sure, maybe not the most nutritious lunch on Earth, but plausibly better than the cafeteria lunches they’ve been serving at schools nowadays.
Annoyed at the implication he and his wife Kylene were not up to the task of caring for their own daughter, Dr. Puckett refused to sign the letter acknowledging he accepted the lunch was not up to scratch.
Dr. and Mrs Puckett were shocked to receive the letter on Tuesday evening when their daughter, Alia, returned home from school.
It read: ''Dr. and Mrs. Puckett, The cafeteria reported to me that Alia's lunch today included four chocolate bars, a bag of marshmallows, Ritz crackers and a pickle. Please see that she packs a proper lunch tomorrow.'
The letter then ends with a curt demand - 'Parent signature requested'. The Pucketts wrote back, 'Request declined'.
What annoyed Dr. Puckett most about the letter was the judgmental tone it struck, leaving him in no doubt his parenting skills were under question.
