I have a student who has not come to school for a week now. Last week, her last day before this extended break, she and her family were informed that she needed to pay her lunch balance (over 200$) or simply receive a "simple lunch" (as it is called, consisting of a sandwich, milk and veggies the state coves) when she does not bring her home lunch. She generally brings her own lunch, but those days she hasn't have added up. Any who, her parents are upset by this (yes, they have been notified regularly of the balance) and are no longer sending her until the school agrees to forgive the bill. Yes, that is stuff that's way over my responsibility, but this is also my lowest student and we were just getting into the groove of interventions for her. Now I'm worried that when/if she does return, we're going to be further behind. Any suggestions on what I can do on my end?
