Meal Modification Information

Parents,
Thank you for the opportunity to provide lunches to your children daily.  We are happy to know that you trust us with their nutrition and we do our best to meet the dietary guidelines put forth by the USDA while still making affordable, home-cooked meals. 

Due to the increase in students who may require special diets or modifications due to allergies, intolerances, etc. I am sending out the form now so you have time to get those filled out by the beginning of school in August.
 
If I have a form on file for your child and NOTHING has changed with their diet, you DO NOT need to get me an updated form.  However, if diet restrictions have been released or changed, please get me an updated form.
 
For ANY child who will be eating school lunches that has any form of medical allergy or intolerance, we MUST have this form filled out by an MD, DO, ARNP or PA only.

For children that have issues with certain foods, I cannot keep them protected without proper documentation of the foods so we do not use them in their meal.

Although you may have a doctor's note on file in the office, the kitchen must still have this specific form from the state in order to make any changes whatsoever to your child's plate.  If we do not have this form when school starts, we will be unable to provide any changes to the menu for your child and they will need to bring a sack lunch on the days they can't have certain foods or they must turn them down and we cannot offer a substitution.

We are more than happy to make substitutions and meal modifications when it is medically necessary for your student's health.  That said, if you prefer special diets that are not medically necessary we unfortunately cannot continue to meet everyone's preferences and feasibly continue to provide affordable lunches.  
 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email me.  Thank you for your understanding as we try to make the best possible meals for your children while meeting their specific medical needs.  My cell phone number is 620-491-0130 if you have any questions over the summer, please use it.  Thank you, Dana Weninger, Food Service Director
