SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

It's time for this week's cafeteria report card. Every week we are grilling an area school cafeteria to make sure the food your kids are served is safe to eat. This week we checked behind the kitchen doors of Caddo Parish elementary school cafeterias. Only one school had no violations.

Caddo Heights School impressed health inspectors; they cooked up a flawless inspection. Creswell Elementary School didn't do as well. They had 1 critical violation and 1 non-critical violation. Their critical violation is: the water temperature in cleaning station was not getting hot enough to properly sanitize items.
