One Team, One Goal: Student Success!

Student Allergies & Special 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.

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 puréed foods), a licensed physician’s written instructions indicating the appropriate changes is required.
