We got a memo from the school informing us of a new rule at Carrolltowne Elementary School. Effective immediately, when a parent visits a child to have lunch with them, they are now ostracized to a new "parent table".
I don't know about you, but when I went to visit my kids for lunch at school, and I've been visiting kids for 10 years, I think it's a great opportunity to interact with my son and his friends and get to know who his influences are. But apparently, Carrolltowne administrators think we need to not know who my kids friends are.
What do you suspect the reason is for this child interaction ban? The memo says that a situation occurred recently. My guess is that a parent heard something that should not have been communicated outside of the school, then went around telling all of the other helicopter parents until it got back to someone who was smart enough to report it. I generally think that parents are clueless about was is appropriate and what is not.
Fortunately, per the memo, the new parent table will provide a safe environment for our children. Way to spin it with a double-scoop of rhetoric.
What's the expression the young kids use these days? Shaking my damn head? SMDH.
