School Enforces Silent Lunches - For Safety

Postby knapplc » Thu Jan 25, 2007 4:21 pm

This is just the dumbest thing. What a stupid, ridiculous over-reaction:

WARWICK, R.I. - The chapel isn't the only place where silence is expected at one Rhode Island Catholic school. The Saint Rose of Lima School in Warwick has new lunch rules that require students to remain silent during lunch.

The move comes after three recent choking incidents in the school cafeteria.

All three students are fine -- but school Principal Jeannine Fuller said in a letter to parents that "the school's priority is the safety of each child."

The letter says all students must remain silent during lunch. Students who don't follow the policy will receive a lunch detention.

Providence Diocese spokesman Michael Guilfoyle says the school is enacting a temporary safety measure. He says the school doesn't expect complete silence but enough quiet to keep students safe.


So three kids choke on their lunch but are fine, so NOBODY gets to talk above a whisper at lunch anymore? Of all the cockamamie things I've heard... 8-o

Horrible idea, this will probably encourage more kids to leave school during lunch to eat somewhere else....

Wow, how is this going to be solving any problems at all? Kids aren't going to choke if they aren't talking? This does nothing to lower the risk of someone choking, it just makes for a horrible lunch period for these kids.

I hope the parents are saying something about this. Only thing this will do is encourage them to talk in class.

I looked into this, they have pre-K up to eighth grade at the school. Thankfully its not high school age children.

The kid is choking, not like he or she can yell for help. I'm quite sure the choking student will get up and move around and cause a general ruckus.

Next thing you know the school will announce that lunches will now consist solely of Applesauce.

As a safety measure, of course.
