A "C" grade was recently issued - not to a student - but to a high school cafeteria for not meeting health department regulations.
Thirteen demerits were issued to Centennial High School in the northwest valley. Violations ranged from inadequate hand washing to improper thermometer use.
A southern Nevada health inspector gave the school cafeteria the low score on Oct. 17 after he made one of two annual visits to the school.
The high school cafeteria had several violations, including a light that was out in the service area and a thermometer that was not calibrated.
The Clark County School District had the flaws fixed the day after the inspection and their grade was returned to an "A" status.
The school district was also fined several hundred dollars.
