A warning from school administrators to parents over their daughter’s lunchbox is one seemingly worthy of a super hero’s rescue. The only problem is that super heroes are banned from the school, even on a lunchbox.
An Imgur user posted a letter earlier this week reportedly sent from school officials to his friends, expressing concern that their daughter brought a “Wonder Woman”-themed lunchbox to school.
"We noticed that Laura has a Wonder Woman lunchbox that features a super hero image," the letter begins. "In keeping with the dress code of the school, we must ask that she not bring this to school."
"The dress code we have established requests that the children not bring violent images into the building in any fashion – on their clothing (including shoes and socks), backpacks and lunch boxes," the letter continues. "We have defined 'violent characters' as those who solve problems using violence. Superheroes certainly fall into that category."
The school’s name and address are redacted in the letter, which was posted anonymously.
The Imgur user also posted two photos of the lunchbox reportedly under fire.
The front of the lunchbox shows just a close-up image of Wonder Woman’s face, while the back shows a full-body image of Wonder Woman in her costume holding her lasso.
“As lovely as Aphrodite, as wise as Athena,” the lunchbox reads.
The letter quickly went viral, prompting even the actress best known for playing Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, to share the story on social media.
