Chocolate milk returns to Vacaville school after students protest
Chocolate milk has returned to a Vacaville school's cafeteria after a group of 4th graders held a protest.

VACAVILLE, Calif. -- Chocolate milk is returning to the menu at a Northern California school following a student protest.

Students at Sierra Vista K-8 school in Vacaville were not happy that chocolate milk was pulled from the lunch menu.

So the fourth-grade class held a protest.

Students and the administration came to a compromise that chocolate milk will return to the menu -- one day, every other week.

Teachers say it was a good way to teach the students how to form an argument and stand up for what they believe in, even if it's only chocolate milk.
