Central Cafeteria Update 9.6.23
On August 10, concerns regarding the smell of gas at Central Cafeteria were raised. Staff were moved out of the building to other school sites and meals were modified at My Little School, Bell Elementary, Chaparral Elementary, and Memorial Elementary. Communication was sent to parents at those four schools along with being posted on our social media sites, website, and released to our media partners. Under emergency procurement, a licensed external plumber was hired to replace all the gas lines in the central cafeteria building. As of September 5, the work has been completed and the inspection was passed. Hot meals resumed at all effected school sites on August 28 utilizing other kitchens across the district. We take all concerns seriously, investigate them thoroughly, and work with appropriate agencies to ensure our facilities are safe. Please call Central Office at (575) 546-8841 if you have any questions.
