School Banning Parents From Bringing Forgotten Lunches To Kids

In the olde daies, the town’s menfolk would have rectified this in short order.

Catholic High School for Boys, in North Little Rock, Arkansas, shared a photo of its own door sign on August 10 to Facebook, which reads: ‘If you are dropping off your son’s forgotten lunch, books, homework, equipment etc., please TURN AROUND and exit the building. Your son will learn to problem-solve in your absence.’

The post has since gained more than 70,000 ‘likes’ and more than 3,600 comments with some applauding the school – which educates boys aged between 14 and 18 – for teaching students ‘autonomy’ and others accusing the $4,400-a-year school of ‘starving’ them.


  • Good.

    1. If it’s good for you, it’s not ‘starvation’, it’s ‘fasting’.
    2. In the old days, this would not have happened.

    I notice the sign specifies “sons”… Does the policy not also apply to forgetful daughters??? Or does the school consider them “pwecious snowfwakes”???

      I suspect that the name “Catholic High School for Boys” is a dead-set give-away in this regard.

      However, it does not mention those who are Transgender, Transitioning, Bi-Curious, etc etc.

        My apologies. 😉

    Boys don’t starve in school. Buddies will share food or lend them money. Same goes if they forget their books, they’ll learn to remember to plan properly.

    I have my son prepare and check his school bag for the next day.and the pestering 🙂

    First good lesson I’ve seen in a school in a long time.
    Good on them.

    I’m pleased to see that Right Wing News actually supports this as a character-building exercise and teaching a lesson on forward planning while it’s only the MSM quotes that are of the “this is abuse” variety.
