Pa. School District Threatens to Take Custody If Parents Don’t Pay Students’ Lunch Bills

Parents in a Pennsylvania school district are being threatened with losing custody of their children if they don’t pay their school lunch debt. A letter was sent to parents in Wyoming Valley West, near Wilkes-Barre. It said the district will take them to court for failing to provide food for their children. The district is owed more than $20,000 by about a thousand families. Legal experts said the letter is legal, but the chances of a child being taken away are slim.
