Focus on buildings, food, milk, at start of RVA school year

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

As students across Central Virginia gear up for their first day of school, they'll find changes at local school districts.

Fairfield Court Elementary students will be back inside their school after having to spend part of last school year at Clark Springs elementary due to a leaky roof.

Kids in Richmond head back for the first day of class despite concerns for conditions inside several schools. A preliminary report from a Richmond Public School task force showed there was a need for $35 million in repairs.

In Chesterfield, a new app will make it easier this year to find out what's on the menu in cafeterias. The app replaces printed menus for middle and high schools. Click here to get the app:  mychesterfieldschools.nutrislice.com.

In Henrico, milk maid at the Marva Maid plant will once again be served throughout the school year. A problem with milk spoilage in May led to milk being pulled from all of the coolers. The problem was pinpointed and according to the health department there are no areas of concern at the plant.

In Petersburg and Richmond, this year all students will be offered free breakfast and lunch for the first time, as part of a community program that allows the district to offer the free meals.
