FOCUS ON FEEDING STUDENTS KEPT KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS OPEN TODAY AMID ICY CONDITIONS!!!

Here's a local life lesson and reminder that 92% of KCPS students are on free or reduced lunch.

Why would a school close today? This is normal winter weather, the roads are clear, not even cold.

Most Blacks would starve if it weren't for White people.

I thought the mission was to provide a safe educational environment for the kids.

No they wouldn’t. They know they can eat at any Applebee’s and walk out without paying.

I am glad that he made the decision that he did. The kids need education time. They need breakfast and lunch. And their parents that have jobs need to be able to go to work without leaving small children at home to get into trouble.
It did not create an unsafe condition to have the busses run and parents take children to school.
I applaud the decision.

92% is pathetic. How much do you suck when you can't even feed your own kids?

HUNGRY KIDS?! Heck, the teachers with mountains of Student Loan debt need to get the freebies or low cost meals, too. Plus, the revenues for our farms and food producers ain't to be messed with. If food sits in the freezers and in fridges and on shelves, district-wide, while the school cancels classes, that's a lot of unmatched district money going bye bye. The state reimbursements are for purchased foods, supplies, and labor costs for cooking/serving the meals. Gotta get that grub onto those plates whether or not it ALL gets eaten, or the food bill goes lower because less is purchased for the school year.

With all the EBT, WIC and other free food programs available to po’folk, if you can’t make your kid a PB&J sandwich for lunch, you are a lazy piece of shit and a worthless parent. Take some responsibility for your kids you pieces of crap!

Ninety two percent of KCSD parents can't even feed their own kids? That's the best advertisement for Planned Parenthood that I've heard yet - or maybe for compulsory sterilization. Three generations of parasites is enough.

What these statistics really say is that only eight percent of KCPSD Parents give a shit about their kids and have any sense of self respect.

Maybe if we made those kids work for their lunch they wouldn't come out of school with a degree in entitlements.

I hear that the Schools are now telling the kids that their Breakfasts and Lunches are being provided to them by the Country of Wakanda.
