(Lancaster) -- A Lancaster County district is ending a policy that had allowed parents to come to school and have impromptu lunches with their children.
The Manheim Township School District has told parents it's ending the lunches because of security concerns, starting May 1st.
In a letter to parents, the district says parents will now have to arrange visits in advance. Lunch visitations are being phased out, except for schools taking part in National School Lunch Week in October.
Jennifer Arms says she's disappointed because she had enjoyed eating lunch with her 9-year-old daughter at Nathan Schaeffer Elementary School once a month.
School board president Hannah Bartges says the district is sorry to have to make the changes, but that student safety is important.
