Dianne Brame, the Hudson Elementary cafeteria worker who was fired for giving a student lunch after he consistently came without lunch money, will be back in the lunch room Monday, according to an STL Today report.
The report said Brame met with her employers at Chartwells and she is happy to be going back.
Brame had said the child had been bullied for only receiving a cheese sandwich for lunch as a student who did not have lunch money. The report added the Webster Groves School District suggested that Brame should have contacted the principal about the situation, and that hot meals are available to students who are in need.
A Hudson Elementary cafeteria worker was fired for sneaking a student lunches after he consistently came to lunch without money, according to a FOX2 report.
Dianne Brame, an employee of the Webster Groves elementary school for two years, said the child used to be on the free lunch program, but that language barriers prevented him from reapplying.
"I sent them paperwork so that they could get back in contact with me, but it didn’t happen," Brame told FOX2.
Brame said she snuck him lunches for days, reaching $45 over in the 4th grade student's account instead of the $10 limit.
She added she was trying to protect the student from bullying, making note of the bread and cheese sandwich given to students on the free lunch meal plan.
Brame, 60, was given an ultimatum Tuesday after her supervisor discovered she was giving away lunches. Brame had to choose to leave, or transfer schools.
What do you think? Would you have done the same thing? Should Brame have kept her job? Tell us in the Comments.
