My dd just started kindergarten. Yesterday, my dd forgot her lunchbox at school. No biggie, I emailed the teacher to give her a heads up so she could put is aside if she found it. She emailed back that she had it and would give it back today. Cool. So this morning I had to find something else to pack her lunch in. Her new school has a strict dress code and requires solid black backpacks and lunch boxes. I only had the one lunchbox that meets code, so I had to use her preschool box that was hot pink. To avoid causing distraction, I put it inside her backpack(like many parents do anyway)... Today when she got home I realized her fresh lunch hasn't been touched. She told me she had the pizza she had in her black lunch box. The pizza that sat in the same lunch box over night, where the ice pack had long since melted by lunch time today. Why would the teacher let her eat the contents of that box when she knew it had been left at school?! And what if my dd had finished everything in it the day before, would she have gone hungry at lunch?? Am I wrong for being upset about this?
