My son's emergency lunch *Edit w/Question

I was reading my son's newsletter (he started 4th grade on Monday) and it says:

Emergency lunch is provided at a charge of $.75 if your child forgets to bring lunch. Emergency lunch consists of a cheese sandwich and milk.

If lunch is forgotten, at say daycare...how am I supposed to know to send $.75? lol I thought it was dumb

***

Question - if they add it to his account as a - then why wouldn't they provide a full lunch then send me an notice? I would rather have that then a cheese sandwich. I hope he never forgets it somewhere but he is a kid.

I would assume you either send that much with him everyday or have to pay the next day.

They'll add it to your tab & when you pay for the next mo they'll charge you.

do they just send you a "bill" saying you owe .75?? otherwise that defeats the purpose of having an emergency lunch.

A cheese sandwich and milk? That's kind of sad.

 If you have a good healthy lunch as an emergency lunch students/parents will be "forgetting" lunch more often. If you know emergency lunch isn't very good you'll try harder to remember.
