special diets applesThe Food Service Department takes special diets of any sort very seriously. If your child needs a special diet due to an allergy, medical condition, or religious preference, please fill out the Medical Plan of Care form: Medical Plan of Care

Please read the form carefully and keep in mind that certain requests, like food substitutions, require a physician’s recommendation and signature.

For life-threatening food allergies, it is very important that there is clear and open communication. The food service staff, the dietitian, and the school staff will work together to ensure a safe environment for all students with allergies. For more information on the collection and communication of special diets, please see the Special Diet Procedures handout.


For questions about the form, how to best accommodate your child’s diet, and to send in the Medical Plan of Care Form, please contact the Registered Dietitian:
