Silence Makes a Return at Catholic School

So teachers can hear if a student is choking...

From the International Tribune:

Alarmed by three recent incidents of choking in the cafeteria, a Catholic
school set a new rule this week: Silence at lunch.

All three students are fine, but "if the lunch room is loud we cannot
hear if a child is choking," school Jeannine Fuller, principal of St. Rose of
Lima School, said in a letter to parents.

Any child who breaks the rule will be put in lunch detention the
following day, Fuller's letter said.
