Today we brought in a pizza lunch for my son's kindergarten class and had planned for the children to eat it in the cafeteria. We discussed it with my son's teacher, principal, and sent a note home to the parents so that they wouldn't question why their child didn't eat hot lunch. The teacher and the principal didn't have a problem with it. So we get to the school and sign in it at the front desk and secretary informs us that they aren't allowed to eat the pizza in the cafeteria, but can have it in their classroom, they already eat breakfast every morning in the classroom, so no big deal. Well the kids still had to go through the lunch line and put in their student number I guess to track that all kids were given the days lunch option.
My question is this normal for schools to do that or is that a weird rule?

It is very normal because of the lunch is a federal program. The school has to prove that they offered the students a hot lunch. There are also other rules pertaining to it but I am not familiar with all of them. I am surprised that the principal didn't mention it. Any time a parent wants to bring pizza at the school I work at, they normally encourage it at around 1:30-2, that way they can get lunch and have time for lunch to settle before they have pizza.
