Druid Hills Middle School cafeteria receives failing health inspection

Druid Hills Middle School’s Cafeteria Fails Health Inspection in Atlanta, Ga

A recent health inspection of the cafeteria at Druid Hills Middle School in Atlanta, Ga revealed multiple violations that led to a score of 63 out of 100. The health inspector observed an employee returning from using the bathroom without washing their hands, improper food storage resulting in milk, lasagna, bean and cheese burritos being stored above 41 degrees and subsequently discarded, two boxes of expired yogurt, spaghetti cooling at room temperature, salads prepared without using proper cooling methods and an inoperable main kitchen hand sink.

In addition to these violations, the walk-in cooler was unable to maintain temperatures of 41 degrees or lower due to issues with its maintenance. This led to a decrease in the cafeteria’s health inspection score from a perfect score in March 2023 to 86 in October. After being questioned by Decaturish, the middle school sent a letter to parents addressing the failed inspection and the measures being taken to rectify the issues.

Principal Sheveeta Bonner assured parents that Druid Hills Middle School is committed to maintaining the highest cleanliness and food safety standards in its school nutrition program. The DeKalb County School District (DCSD) acknowledged the failing health inspection score and expressed their commitment to upholding top-notch cleanliness and food safety standards in school nutrition programs.

The community’s support is acknowledged as the school system aims to surpass these health and safety standards. Those interested in viewing the full report can access it by clicking on the provided link.
