Father Incensed By Substitute Teacher's Outrageous Note

Dr. Justin Puckett is the Medical Director of the Complete Family Medicine clinic in Kirksville, Missouri. He is also the father of Alia, a student at Kirksville Primary School. One day, Alia came home with a note from a substitute teacher that left him quite angry.

The note reads, “The cafeteria reported to me that Alia's lunch today included four chocolate bars, a bag of marshmallows, Ritz crackers and a pickle. Please see that she packs a proper lunch tomorrow.” The note ended with “Parent signature requested,” and the Pucketts wrote back “Request declined.”

Puckett was not too happy that the note implied he was not keeping his daughter healthy. Puckett wrote, “Unfortunately, the letter didn't have what she had, correctly. She had four pieces of ham, a whole protein meat, she also had some pickles, which we admittedly cheat on pickles every once and awhile as a vegetable, because some fights just aren't worth having.”

Puckett then discussed the sweet treats saying, “[Alia] had four marshmallows in a Ziploc bag and then she had three very small pieces of chocolate, of which she ate one for lunch and then she also gave her brother and another friend one at an after school program.”

On Wednesday, the school's principal, Tricia Reger, called to apologize. Puckett said, “She was apologetic for the letter and assured me that they understood that our daughter was being fed appropriately and that there was a little bit of an overreach with the way that was handled.”
