Carver Magnent school is almost done renovating the lunchroom, but all of the new equiptment won't be in for the first day of school. So, the school is going to use temporary equipment until the new tables and serving line are in.
A quarter of a million dollars has gone into renovating two middle school cafeterias in Dothan; one at Girard Middle and the other at Carver Magnet. But as students gather their books and head back to class in mid August the work won't be done.

That's only a slight inconvenience at Carver where the issue is the new tables haven't arrived.

"We'll use the tables we got last year which we got last year and then we'll bring a temporary serving line so, it'll still look great but the final product will be a little bit longer,” said Joey Meigs, the principal at Carver Magnet.

At Girard the challenge is a little bigger, because the cafeteria work isn't done students will have to dine out of a bag.

We tried to talk to Principal Charles Corbitt about it, but he didn't want to talk about it calling our story negative. There are really some positives, like all of this will be solved soon, probably by mid September.

"It was the manufacture not being able to get it done in time. They originally thought they would be able to get it done in time but hey if we have to wait a couple weeks that’s great,” said Meigs.

Maybe the students eating out of the paper bags will think the food is great too.
