A C-School in Hillsborough, Texas has been fined $4,000 by the school board for allowing its students to eat beef and pork in the cafeteria.
The Hillsboro Independent School District said on Thursday that the school district had imposed an administrative fine for allowing students to have their lunch break on meat in its cafeteria.
The district has also been ordered to pay a $4.9 million fine for failing to comply with federal food safety standards, the district said.
District spokesman Matt Sledge said that the district has been reviewing the fine and would decide what to do next.
The school board, which is made up of students from the school’s two highest-performing districts, the City of Hillsboro and the Hillsboro High School District, voted unanimously on Thursday to fine the school for violating federal food regulations.
The Hillbilly High School district said that it would appeal the ruling.
The C- School of Hillsborough was founded in 1919 and is one of the largest in the state, according to its website.
The district said it has more than 5,000 students in grades 9 through 12.
