School Gives Kids Sandwiches As Punishment

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – School officials say the students at a Pennsylvania school are getting sandwiches for lunch for failing to appreciate the hot meals the district provides.

The Harrisburg Patriot- News reports the prekindergarten through eighth-grade students at Camp Curtain School have received cold sandwiches this week as punishment for misbehavior, including failure to clean up after themselves.

An administrator tells the newspaper that behavior has improved. The official says the lunches still include fruit and vegetables.

Hot meal service will resume at the school on Monday.
