CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Time for this week's Action ten Kitchen Cops report where we see who's been keeping it clean, and who needs to clean it up.

There are 7 Perfect Scores in this week's report.

We stopped by Travis Elementary School on Tarleton to congratulate Cafeteria Manager Imelda Hernandez and her crew for keeping it clean and safe for the kids there.
They have Perfect Score stickers going back nearly ten years, 2012.

We also stopped to deliver a Perfect Score sticker to Los Encinos Elementary School on Dorado.
Congratulations to them.

We also visited the Solomon Coles School on Winnebago where Janie Yanez is a one woman crew.
Coles has been recognized many times before.
Yanez is proud to earn a sticker, considering that by herself, she preps breakfast and lunch for the students.
She says her day begins at 7;30 and doesn't end till 2;30.
Thanks for keeping it clean and safe for the students, Ms. Yanez.

Ray High School, Carroll High School, Donut World on Ayers, and Chick-fil-A on Saratoga all also earned Perfect Scores as well.

There are 18 places on the A list with scores ranging from 99-91.

Inspectors found 6 violations at La Ribera Mexican Restaurant on Morgan, earning them a score of 87 and the top spot on the B list.

Seafood and Spaghetti Works on 910 Hwy 361 heading into Port A, had 7 violations, including dirty ceiling fixtures above the food oprep area.
That earned them a score of 86.

Taqueria la Tapatia at 5606 Everhart had 13 violations, including the dishwasher needing to be at proper sanitizing level.
