My 5th grader returned home from school highly concerned about something and I can't sleep over this as well. He was told that due to misbehavior in assembly that his ENTIRE fifth grade class will not be given lunch or recess.

I thought at first he was trying to get out of going to school, but then he said he wanted to go to school but hated to be hungry. I'm diabetic and I watch him carefully. He shows some signs of hypoglycemia here and there and I'm very concerned.

Do you think they're bullshitting him? Is this legal? Should I call the school tomorrow morning? I told my son I'd send him anyway but that if he was denied food to demand to call home.

Your thoughts please?

I can see them taking away recess and lunch as in allowing them to eat, but not socialize for severely bad behavior. But they had better be allowing them to eat! I would be at the school in the morning asking what was going on.

They have to allow them to eat lunch. Maybe they were saying that they will not be allowed to go to the cafeteria.

They can't deny lunch. Maybe they meant lunch recess. Either way, I would keep my kid home from school that day.
