Students with Special Dietary Needs & Food Allergies
At the beginning of each school year, or at the time of enrollment, parents are responsible for communicating any special dietary needs of their child, including food allergies, to the district.
Substitutions to regular school meals provided by the district will be made for students who are unable to eat regular meals due to a qualifying dietary need when that need is certified in writing by the student's physician.
The purpose of requiring a written statement is two-fold. First, it ensures that the nutrition integrity of the school meal will not be compromised by the substitution. More importantly, it ensures that decisions about specific food substitutes are made by persons who are highly qualified to prescribe them.
