Just a little waste

It might seem a "Small" expense, but is it really needed?

Riding past Garfield school the other day, i saw bottled water being deliverd into the school. I'm sure to some it may seem like nothing, but in the long run it adds up ( $$$) . Don't know if other schools do this also, but what about the "ole" days when Keany town water was the only thing to drink. Inflated school budgets???

BOTTLED WATER IS NOT FOR OUR KIDS... THEY STILL ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO DRINK FROM THE WATER FOUNTAINS. THE BOTTLED WATER IS FOR THE FAT CATS IN THE ADMINISTRATION AND WE PAY FOR IT.WAIT TIL YOU SEE LUNCH BEING DELIVERED AT OUR EXPENSE TOO.

It's possible that it was going into vending machines, I guess.

That may have been refills for machines which staff & students pay for each bottle. But ya wanna talk about waste? How about paying a retired secretary $20 an hour to sell uniform shirts @ the Board office? How many people are walking into the Board office @ 100 Davis Ave each day to purchase a shirt?

In Maryland several schools, have been force to provide bottle water for the children to drink, because the lead levels in the water were high.

Could this be the case, at Garfield? If it isn't then, I agree that it is a waste of funds. While should the staff get bottle water, while the children use water fountains

Having bottle water in the school's office, does seem to be the norm at most of the Baltimore City schools, I been in over the years my kids were in school. I dislike the practice, since at the same time there was no toilet paper, or paper towels in the bath rooms. As a volunteer at the school, I had to watch as kids asked the teacher for some toilet paper, when they asked to use the bathrooms. I also learn to keep some tissue in my purse, in case I had to use the bathrooms while at the school.
