A place for moms to connect

A public school in Tennessee wants to limit the amount of times in a 9 week period that a parent can come and eat lunch with their child.  A friend of mine has children that attend this school, and is pretty upset about it.  Here is the article:

What do you all think?  The comments are pretty mixed on the topic.

I just noticed that you had already posted this article, so sorry for my repeat post on the forum! Here is how I feel...I personally do not agree with what this school is doing. I think there are safe ways for parents to visit their children. At my daughter's school, parents have to sign in and be buzzed into the school. My daughter LOVES when I come to have lunch with her. And I do know some children, especially those attending school for the first time, who really need to see their parents during lunch in the beginning. I think this school should have tried to come up with an alternative way to keep the children safe while still letting parents come to eat lunch with their kiddos.
