  1. So who can we tell them these thins about boundaries, I’ve messages the superintendent before and he said go to your principle…Hello your over her obviously she’s not doing something write. You guys should get the world out about rising prices in lunch, but not quality or quantity. Largo HS is a good example lunch is now 2.85… 15 years ago I bought the same (actually fresher better lunches at Perrywood) For 1.85. So please support and help get the word out Wheres the First Lady when you need her!
