Now that "block scheduling" was proved a farce and the administration and schedule changed...perhaps we can have healthier, better educated kids.
Some school administrators are like green gutted tomatoe worms.

Really! Students spend about a 1/4 of their day 5 days a week at school, yet you blame them for child obesity, and what students eat! Parents do your job, and if you don't like the food bring your own. Take responsibility for what your kids do and quit looking for someone else to blame for the problems of today. Get the kids off the Playstations and get them out of the house if they are having difficulties with weight or fitness. The blame game has gotten us where we are today.
I agree. My daughter goes to Los Alisos and she had had a cheeseburger everyday since the start of school..well except for Wednesdays when she eats pizza. My kids eat healthy at home, they are all in every sport imaiginable, but they LOVE to eat the junk food provided by our school district. I have called NLMUSD and complained but they say the food is fine, it meets all "standards" Really?? Since when were Slushies healthy?
