Here is Kilbert’s statement:

“I want to reassure the parents and students in the Orleans Parish School System that we place our highest priority on creating a safe environment at each of our schools. That priority extends to the cleanliness of our food facilities and the quality of food served in our schools. The two traditional schools cited by DHH in the WDSU-TV report were inspected in May 2011.         

In the rare instance where deficiencies are discovered through inspections of our cafeterias and food service facilities, our staff moves quickly to remediate them as quickly and thoroughly as possible. In the cases pointed out by your station today, we conducted follow-up investigations and identified areas where remedies could be instituted quickly. At the time of the inspections where serious situations were cited, such as roaches on the premises, there were no students present.

Orleans Parish School Board schools have a well earned reputation for academic excellence and for creating safe learning environments. We are proud of the achievements of our students, including the highest graduation rate in Louisiana, and we are doing everything in our power to ensure a continuation of our progress in the future.”
