Food Allergies & Special Dietary Needs

If your child has a food allergy or condition that affects his/her food intake and he/she plans to eat school meals, please print off the “Special Dietary Request Form” below and have it completed by a licensed medical practitioner (a healthcare provider who can prescribe medication) to request substitute foods/beverages. Please send the completed forms to your school secretary or directly to the School Nutrition Department in person at Central Office, or via email to Mariah Warnecke (

Please Note

We do our best to maintain online allergy and nutrition information on our online menus. On the right-hand side of the online menus, you are able to filter for foods that contain any of the 8 most common food allergens. This is to be used as a guide only. If relying on this analysis for carbohydrate counting and/or other special dietary needs (allergens), please be aware of the following considerations:

  • The allergen details are only as accurate as the ingredient, recipe, and portion size entered into the software, based on data from the manufacturer or vendor.
  • Any new or newly formulated ingredients, changes in recipes, or changes in planned portion sizes may change the original analysis (and nutritional and/or allergen information).
  • Nutrient analyses can only allow for the planned portion size and are not able to compensate for the amount actually consumed.
  • There are times when last-minute substitutions or menu changes occur, and these may not be reflected in the daily or weekly nutrient analysis provided. Also, School Nutrition may not receive ample warning that a substitution will be required based on supply from our distributors or vendors.
