    With the recent failure of the food safety inspection at the middle school will Whitson’s be held accountable with monetary penalties against them? Beside increased and/or retraining of the kitchen staff and fixing the known issues, what steps and procedures is the district putting in place to prevent this from happening in any of our kitchen facilities in the future?
