Milford High Tells Parents to Stop Dropping Off Fast Food for Students

Posted: Updated:

MILFORD, Del.- Parents of students at Milford High School have been told to stop dropping off fast food to the school for their kids to eat for lunch.

Principal Shawn Snyder wrote in a message to parents on Tuesday that the delivery of fast food and energy drinks or coffee would no longer be allowed.

"This has become a distraction for both our students and staff," he said.

Instead of dropping off food from outside the school, Snyder reminded parents that students are provided with the opportunity for free breakfast and lunch at the school.

However, he noted that any outside food or beverages would need to be disposed of before classes began.

Milford School District Superintendent Kevin Dickerson was supportive of the move and said the district would work with high school parents during the occasional forgetting of a bagged lunch.

"For a student forgetting to bring their lunch, the parent can visit the main office to drop off the forgotten lunch prior to or during their student’s lunch time," he said.

The change in policy is immediate at Milford High School.
