Check your pizza for plastic

Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

Many teachers around the state could be getting a reward for effectiveness and other areas involving the classroom.  Officials in 63 of the state's 70 school districts have submitted new salary schedules.  That includes a new rule in Calcasieu Parish that would mean $1,500 stipends.  We'll tell you more at noon.

If you have a frozen pizza in your freezer, you may want to pull it out and see if it's been recalled because they could be contaminated with plastic fragments.  Nestle Pizza Company is recalling four frozen-pizza products.  We'll have all the info on the brands, and you can also read more about it HERE.

Also today, we'll show you how the healthcare industry is joining the high tech wave – using technology to help patients and their families in several different ways.

Plus, archeologists have found evidence of cannibalism in Jamestown hundreds of years ago.   Experts say colonists were doing what they could to survive.

In weather, Ben tells me the cloudy skies will begin to clear this afternoon, but watch out for the winds – there's a Wind Advisory in effect.   Our highs won't go past the 60's, and tonight promises to  bring record cold temperatures.  How cold will it get?   What about our weekend?  Get all the info during Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air.   We hope you join us.  Have a great day, and a wonderful weekend!
