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. A recognized medical authority must complete and sign the Medical Plan of Care for the food service team in your child’s school to make appropriate substitutions. Recognized Medical Authorities in Pennsylvania are:
- Physician Assistant
- Certified Nurse Practitioner
Please return the completed form to the Food Service Office, 2601 Grandview Blvd., West Lawn, PA 19609 or to the School Nurse at your child’s school. We use a collaborative process to communicate special diet needs to the Food Service team at your child’s school. If desired, we will contact you to develop a plan of action, identify specific concerns, and introduce your student to the Cafeteria Manager. Any changes to your child’s medical condition care plan must be sent to the Nursing Department with necessary information and signatures.
Our goal is to provide nutritious meals which meet the special dietary 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 specific information on calories, carbohydrates, fat and sodium.
