Perry County Schools Want Lunch Money From Parents

Perry County school officials say 236 students at nine of their schools owe a total of $37,000 in lunch money to the school system.

The alternative lunch at Perry County schools will be a cheese or peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and milk.

"We certainly don't want it to be seen as we're implementing this policy as a vindictive way to get back at parents that are not paying their bill," said Perry County schools financial officer, Jody Maggard.

Maggard also says they did not want to do this, but hopes it serves as a wake-up call to irresponsible parents failing to pay school lunch bills.
