How to Request Special Dietary Accommodations

Special dietary accommodation requests do not automatically renew for the following academic year and must be resubmitted yearly to the district.

Information on Food Kept in Health Office

Snacks and Meals from Food and Nutritional Services

  • Food and Nutrition Services cannot provide food or juice in classrooms or offices. This includes the health office. If there is an occasional medical emergency and the cafe staff has an item you may need, they may be able to help, but they should never be a part of the medical plan. 
  • For sites who have students with diabetes, parents are required to supply to the school any juice and snacks required for care. 
    • We do understand that sometimes the snacks run out and the student is low. 
    • Food and Nutritional Services are permitted to give reimbursal meals to a student if they missed a meal during the regular meal times. If you have a hungry student who missed a meal, typically the cafe staff can usually find a way to get a hungry student a complete meal. These situations can usually be handled at the site level and/or with help from the cafe's area supervisor.
