May I respectfully ask parents and those loved ones who prepare school lunches to make sure that when items are packed, the lids and what-nots are secure?
About two times a week, I have a leaky lunch that needs to be mopped up/cleaned up/replaced in my classroom. This takes away from our all-too-precious instructional time.
Any efforts you can make to ensure that lunches, water bottles, etc. do not leak is greatly appreciated.
Please also avoid packing fruit juice as a water bottle refreshment. These bottles often leak and due to the sugary nature of the juice, clean up is that much more time-consuming and inconvenient.
Juice boxes or factory sealed bottles are fine.
