A school district in New Jersey has a problem and they're trying to make sure that those who are in debt to the cafeteria will pay their tab.
The Cherry Hill Public School Board recently passed a new rule -- students who are $75 in the hole in the cafeteria can't go to the prom, participate in extracurricular activities or buy a yearbook, WPVI reported.
Lunch costs $3 for elementary and middle school meals, and $3.10 for meals at the high schools, the Inquirer reported.
Students can still get a meal when they're $10 in the red. When it hits $25, then parents are contacted, the Inquirer reported.
Students are not happy with the change, saying they should not be punished if their parents haven't paid the tab, WPVI reported.
