Can you believe it? School lunch is controversial. In this time of political extremes even the hot dog is at risk. The federal government, in an attempt to ensure healthy eating for our children, requires schools to serve meals with new and very specific requirements for reduced salt, required whole grains, required quantities of fruits and vegetables, specified calorie levels for each age grouping, and low fat milk. Federal funding of the free and reduced lunches for school districts is dependent on compliance.

I feel privileged to be taking over as superintendent of the Anoka-Hennepin School District. As a student who attended school here from elementary through high school graduation, as a parent of three children attending schools in the district, and as a resident and taxpayer, I am committed to and invested in our students, schools and community.
