Click Photo to Enlarge  
Pictured above is Larry Mitchell speaking to the students about his experiences at the Veterans Day assembly at South Shelby.

Not only was their a show of love and respect from the South Shelby Middle School and High School students toward the veterans who came out to speak to them, but there was a lot of respect shown between the veterans themselves.
   The annual Veterans Assembly that was held Thursday, Nov. 10, has become one of South Shelby’s finest events it hosts during the school year, and this year was no exception. Students hung on every word as veterans of all ages told of their experiences in the military, some during war time, others during a time of peace. Each one was given an big round of applause after they told their story.
   The South Shelby band played patriotic songs before the veterans spoke and South Shelby sophomore Meredith O’Neal closed the event with a very moving performance of Taps.
   High school principal Deacon Windsor hosted the event and thanked the local veterans for taking the time to come to the school to speak to the students.

Shelby County R-IV School Board Discusses Issue of Upaid Lunch Bills and Fines

Shelby County R-IV Superintendent Tim Maddex talked to the School Board about the increasing issue of unpaid lunch bills and fines during November board meeting that was held Thursday, Nov. 10 in the middle school library.
   Unpaid Lunch Bills
   And Fines
   Maddex had a packet for board members which included the district’s current policy. It states that the district is to make every effort to collect any fines and current bills that students have. It doesn’t specifically say what to do. The school currently sends letters to parents. Maddex said they haven’t currently sent anything to a collection agency.
   The USDA put out a memo in July saying that this is becoming a real issue with a lot of schools across the nation.
   Maddex explained that if the state doesn’t develop a policy, it’s up to the district. He said he’s pretty sure the state isn’t going to develop a policy. He said it’s important to develop a policy that minimizes the identification of children who have the insufficient funds. Maddex explained that small claims would most likely identify those people since it’s printed in the newspapers. He said it’s important to maintain the financial integrity of the non-profit school district.
   Maddex had sent a question to several local schools asking what they have done to deal with this issue. He got back a variety of answers.
   Maddex said he does not want to take food out of kids mouths, but at the same time he needs to find a way to get parents to pay. Windsor also noted that students can’t go through the graduation ceremony until their bills are paid.
   Maddex he said he has tried to get many of those people to fill out the paperwork for free and reduced lunch. He noted that many don’t want to do that.
   In the month of October, the district received about $3,000 in bad checks. Maddex said he wants to get a policy in place. He was asking if they want to have a ceiling of how much a person can owe, or a timetable to get it paid.
   Maddex said another reason he wants a policy in place is to be able to treat everyone equal, and not be perceived as showing favoritism toward one person and not the next.
   Maddex plans to put something together for the next meeting. He asked the board what the dollar amount should be to cap. The board suggested $100 per kid or $200 per family.
