'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

South Fayette school officials voted Tuesday night to approve a request for the high school to opt out of the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program.

Food service director Tricia Wood said the guidelines, which went into effect July 1, would place an undue burden on the high school cafeteria, which is set up as a food court with various ala carte options.

She said what the school serves this year will continue to follow the previous guidelines.

“Our menu will stay the same as it was last year,” Wood said. “This is not a step down from what we have done in the past.”

By opting out, the high school will not receive federal reimbursement for its free and reduced lunches.

Out of 759 high school students, 74 were eligible for free lunch and 11 for reduced lunch, according to 2013-14 data from the state department of education.

The South Fayette district has the fourth-lowest number of free- and reduced-lunch eligible students in the county.
