West Ashley Middle School received back to back downgrades from Department of Health and Environmental Control inspectors following recent routine and follow-up inspections.
According to the report, the school did not have a person in charge (PIC) present. This is one of three priority violations that accounted for the grade dropping twice.
The school’s grade slipped to a “B” following a routine inspection on May 8. The subsequent follow-up on May 17 resulted in the drop to a “C”.
During that inspection, the report also noted problems with hot holding temperatures and cold holding temperatures.
Ye Ole Fashioned Cafe on Rivers Avenue in North Charleston also down to a “C”.
Similar violations here.
One related to not have a “PIC present”.
Another for cold holding temperatures and one for proper cooling methods and adequate equipment for temperature control. The inspector noted the walk-in cooler can’t keep foods at 41 degrees or lower.
