Special Food and Nutrition Needs

The cafeteria manager and staff are available to partner with you to help keep your child safe, along with support from the central office staff.  We all have the same goal – to ensure that the food served in the cafeteria is nutritious and safe for all of our students. If your child has special food and nutrition needs, notify your local school nurse to begin the process of developing an Individualized Health Care Plan that is specific to his or her needs.

Allergen Information


It is important that the principal and staff at your child's school knows about your child's allergy. If your child has a food allergy(s), notify your local school nurse to develop an Allergy Action Plan that is specific to his or her needs, reaction, and understanding of the allergy.

We provide our parents with the information about our school menu products. The allergen information provided is based on our current information from manufacturers and the USDA database. 

Products served throughout the school year may change based on the availability of commodity and purchased products. Unforeseen circumstances may result in products becoming unavailable or requiring product substitution. The allergen list is updated as new information becomes available.

Please be aware that the formulation of products by manufacturers may change at any time and no notice is given to their customers.

Food Modifications


 For children who require changes to the basic meal (such as special supplements or substitutions) or require modifications in texture (such as chopped, ground or pureed foods), a licensed physician’s written instructions indicating the appropriate changes  is required. If your child requires food modifications, notify your local school nurse to begin the process of developing a plan that is specific to his or her needs.
