Harrisburg school disciplines students by taking away hot lunches

    It’s been cold cuts and PB&J for some Harrisburg School District students this week. Camp Curtain School cut its hot lunch program to discipline students for things like not cleaning up after themselves.

    “We created the opportunity where we could show them what the bare minimum would be,” an unnamed administrator told the Patriot-News, noting fruit and vegetables were still included with the sandwiches the cafeteria served up.

    Hot meals will resume Monday.
