The School Board recognizes that some students need dietary modifications due to life threatening food allergies or other special needs.
Students with a food allergy classified as a disability under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act or Part B of IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) are entitled to receive appropriate substitutions of food items when the allergen could result in severe, life-threatening (anaphylactic) reaction.
The parent shall contact the Food and Nutrition Services Department to obtain the appropriate form required to document the need for a dietary modification, provide verification from a licensed health care provider, and request the substitution of food items.
