Guam - With the start of classes just days away, the Department of Public Health is hustling to re-inspect the island's school cafeterias. According to Department of Education Interim Superintendent Taling Taitano, eight cafeterias passed inspection Tuesday, with the exception of John F. Kennedy High School, which is still lacking kitchen equipment and will not be used as a primary prep site.

"We're hoping to have food delivered to our cafeterias at the earliest Thursday, maybe up until Saturday, so they'll be ready for the opening of school on Monday," Taitano said.

Public Health Environmental Health Administrator Tom Nadaeu says his staff is working to re-inspect all school cafeterias by the end of this week.

The start of school was pushed back one week after several cafeterias failed inspections.
