A few bands of snow showers continue to move through the area this morning, adding on to the spots of black ice we're already seeing across the area. The snow should start to wrap up by late morning, but the travel issues will continue into the afternoon hours. Keep it locked here for updates.
WASHINGTON (AP) -
The Agriculture Department says 524 schools - out of about 100,000 - have dropped out of the federally subsidized national school lunch program since the government introduced new standards for healthier foods last year.
The new standards have been met with some grumbling from school nutrition officials who say they are difficult and expensive to follow and conservatives who say the government shouldn't be dictating what kids eat. Children have complained that the less-greasy food doesn't taste as good. But USDA says the vast majority of schools are serving healthier food.
USDA said about a half-percent of schools dropped out of the program. Data the department is releasing Monday also shows that 80 percent of schools say they have already met the requirements.
