A New Jersey grammar school let a special needs student go hungry instead of contacting his parents over an unpaid bill, according to several reports. Despite an apology from the school district, the parents may now transfer the boy to a private school, according to Fox News.
John Robert Caravella, a 5-year-old kindergartner with autism, was
denied a $2.30 meal by Cliffwood Elementary School in Matawan because
his parents had yet to settle an $8 charge that was just a few days overdue, reports the Newark Star-Ledger.
