Well, that was fast.  I don't know if all the Kossacks who called and wrote letters based on my earlier diary created the tipping point for justice won, but hell, let's just assume they did!

Via KMOV Channel 4 St. Louis:

ST. LOUIS ( – The Webster Grove School District has rehired a Hudson Elementary School cafeteria worker just days after being fired for letting a student eat hot lunches for free.

Dianne Brame said higher-ups within the district overruled her supervisor and reinstated her.
Brame said she was fired earlier this week for knowingly breaking a rule and letting a student eat hot lunches without paying for them.

And we learn that Brame was unaware of the procedures in place to deal with a situation which she encountered.  Wouldn't it have just made sense for her boss to have made her aware instead of firing her in the first place?
Brame said she will not have to have conflict mediation between her and her boss to smooth over the issue. She added she was told there is a procedure already in place for getting hot meals to underprivileged children.

When talking to News 4, Brame also added the lunch restriction policy at any school can be appealed so that no child would be served a certain meal on a permanent basis.
Brame said she was unaware of the appeals process but has been briefed on how to resolve similar issues in the future.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
