Today I registered my daughter for her junior year of high school. Part of that included turning in the paperwork for free/reduced lunch for her.
exDH and I divorced in October and I only work part time right now.
I have applied for a promotion at work and so far it's looking really good for me. If I get the job then it will be full time and my pay will almost triple, making it so that my DD will no longer qualify for the free lunch.
I talked to the finance lady about that and she said the change in my financial status won't matter. That she is approved for free lunch based on my income now and that would be good for the entire school year, even if I get the promotion.
Am I the only one who thinks that that is kind of wrong?
Right now we need the help and I am thrilled that it's available, but when I no longer need it there is no way for me to stop it, she will continue to get the free lunches for the entire year regardless of my change in pay.
