Bob Connors Addresses Irle School Lunch Program
Glasgow Schools Superintendent Bob Connors released the following statement in response to growing concerns from area parents about the lunch program at Irle School:
“This past week, we again had issues at the Irle school concerning our lunch program. A number of our 4th and 5th graders did not receive the main line choice of sloppy joes. The students were allowed to replace the sloppy joes with a peanut butter sandwich or lunch meats from the salad bar. We did run out of lunch meat, but had peanut butter sandwiches available. All students had the opportunity to eat lunch.
We have addressed the portion control issue that caused the sloppy joe shortage this past week. As our District kitchen sends the meals to Irle, we have also changed our distribution checkout as well as our check-in procedures at both sites. We have addressed personnel to inform them of the serious nature of having main line shortages.
I personally apologize. We are, and will continue to evaluate all of the District’s programs.”
The next school board meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 6 p.m. in the Glasgow Boardroom at 229 7th Street N. At press time, this topic is not currently on the agenda.
