What If My Child Has Special Dietary Needs?
New Special Dietary Needs Procedure
Adams 12 Nutrition Services understands that there are many students in our schools with special dietary needs. Nutrition Services wants to make you aware of our Special Dietary Needs procedures.
Adams 12 WILL:
- Make meal modifications (substitutions) prescribed by a licensed physician to accommodate a dietary disability based on a medical statement completed and signed by a licensed physician (doctor of medicine or osteopathy).
- Make modifications (substitutions) for students as called for in their Section 504 or an IEP plans.
Adams 12 WILL NOT:
- Make meal modifications (substitutions) prescribed by a medical authority due to a food allergy/intolerance or other medical condition that does not rise to the level of a disability.
In this case, Adams 12 Nutrition Services WILL provide nutrition information regarding ingredients in menu items specific to the student’s allergy or intolerance to help parents and students make appropriate meal choices.
Make substitutions for fluid cow’s milk due to a food allergy or intolerance or for other reasons.
