Manheim Township schools ban parents from eating lunch with their children

Quote:The Manheim Township School District has notified parents that they will no longer be allowed to visit schools to have lunch with their children, a move it says is designed to "ensure a safe learning environment."

~snip~

Manheim Township's policy is similar to one adopted for safety reasons in York County earlier this year following the mass shootings at a Connecticut elementary school in December that killed 20 first-graders and six educators.

I'm not really seeing the connection here. Is the school board actually saying that they suspect parents of being mass murderers? I bet I can find way more cases where teachers have abused children within the hallowed halls of learning than kids that have been killed by their parents while eating lunch.

Just another way to get parents out of schools, since the gov't knows how to raise our kids better than we do.

Ohfergawdssake. I'm surprised that the parents were allowed into the school for lunch-periods except on some sort of official business (which doesn't include eating the yummy cafeteria food). I can't imagine it being condoned even at the Catholic schools I attended in the 60's and 70's. And I can't imagine too many kids would welcome it anyway.

It's not some sort of conspiracy to cut parents out.

It was probably a pain in the ass to manage who was in and out, and where they went, all while the school staff was trying to eat their lunch.

And think about it. Yeah, as a parent you know you're okay, but do you really want random adults wandering around the school while your kids are there, bringing with them whatever problems they might have, just on the strength of having a kid in the school? Plenty of kids have been molested by their peers' parents.

Plenty more kids who haven't been molested too. Has it happened? Yes, I work for an agency that helps kids who've had things like that happen. It's not the norm, however.

It doesn't hold much water to use the argument that it's for the safety of the children to ban parents from seeing their kids at lunch. That decision should be left up to the parent, and the kid should be able to tell said parent whether or not it's welcome. From there let the family decide what to do, unless it becomes an actual disruption.

Yeah, and who wouldn't be the first to raise hell and sue the hell out of the school district if some parent who was there for lunch felt up a kid in the bathroom?

It's a sorry state of affairs, but nobody who hasn't passed the appropriate background checks can be allowed unsupervised contact with the children in the school's custody.

Parents have rights, yeah; but so does the school district. Don't like it? Home school or pick (and possibly pay additional for) a school that will yield to your demand to eat PBJ with your little darlings on a week-day.

I hate to point out the obvious to you, but it seems like it has been those who have passed the background checks, teachers, who have been the people having inappropriate contact with children and teenagers alike, head and shoulders above other parents.

Parents molest abuse and kill their children more than anyone else. Seems fitting to remove children from their parents at birth...

They are from their mothers at least...and some even get cut out!

But I don't see why parents should be allowed to stop by for lunch anyway--too much of a distraction to teachers & students.
