Don't mess with the lunch ladies.

Students at a New Jersey high school have learned not to mess with the lunch ladies.

Cafeteria workers served only cheese sandwiches Wednesday and Thursday as punishment for a cell-phone-coordinated food fight at Atlantic City High School in southern New Jersey.

School superintendent Fredrick Nickles says the school supplies only the basic food requirement when there's been a food-throwing incident. Nickles says the policy has been effective over the years.

Only the group that engaged in the fight out of the school's three lunch periods was punished.

Parent Bridgitte Reid became angry after her daughter explained the menu. Reid called it "prison food.''

Students will get a regular menu on Friday.
