HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Horry County schools have been in session for four weeks now and health inspectors are making the rounds to make sure cafeteria workers are following all the guidelines to keep students' food safe. 

We checked several schools to see what health inspectors found. 

The cafe at St. James Middle School received an overall score of 96 out of a 100. The school's cafeteria food manager, Tarsha Bryant, said she and her workers take pride in providing healthy and tasty meals for the students.

"We follow the guidelines, but we try to mix it up with a little bit of flavor in our food, the spices or whatever, to make sure they have a good taste," Bryant said. "And the food, the presentation, I tell my ladies make sure the food always looks presentable."

The middle school was just shy a few points for a perfect score. The health inspector observed cold-holding thermometers were not in some self-serve reach-in coolers for milk and juice. 

Also on the menu was Myrtle Beach High School, which had an overall score of 97 this week. The health inspector noted a milk cooler was not at the proper temperature, which was corrected immediately.

Cafeteria food manager Tiffany Edge said the school purchased a brand new cooler this week. She added the next time the health inspector comes the school will receive a perfect score. 

St. James Elementary scored a 97. According to the health inspector's report, there was no proof of a certified food protection manager. 

Calvary Christian School's snack bar scored a 98, with the health inspector observing there was not a food protection manager certification provided.

Carolina Forest Elementary, Myrtle Beach Middle School and Ocean Bay Elementary all earned a perfect score of 100.
