SPECIAL DIETS & NUTRITION INFORMATION
The Food Service Department is required to make accommodations if your child is unable to eat school meals because of a disability that restricts their diet. You must have a recognized medical authority complete and sign the Medical Plan of Care for School Food Service so we can make appropriate substitutions. Recognized Medical Authorities in Pennsylvania are:
- Physician Assistant
- Certified Nurse Practitioner
Please return the completed form to the School Nurse at your child’s school. We use a collaborative process to communicate the special diet needs to the Food Services team at your child’s school. We will contact you to develop a plan of action, identify specific concerns, and introduce your student to the Cafeteria Manager. Should there be a change to your child’s special diet needs we must receive written, signed notification.
Our goal is to provide nutritious meals which meet the special diet needs of your child. We have several resources for you to use in monitoring your child’s special dietary needs.
On the Menu page of the Food Services website you will find a Nutrition Analysis of meals served weekly in our schools. Please check this page to find the planned menu nutrient make-up.
