MEAL SUBSTITUTIONS FOR MEDICAL OR SPECIAL DIETARY REASONS

Some children have food allergies or other conditions that affect their ability to eat, or in some cases, come into contact with certain food items.  To accommodate such children in the preparation and service of food in our cafeterias, we ask that parents/guardians inform us of specific allergies or conditions that could affect the ability of their child to eat food prepared in or eaten in our cafeterias or classroom environments.
 
Regardless of whether you have informed us previously of food-related allergies and conditions, all parents/guardians of children with these conditions must have their child's treating physician complete and return a physician form annually.  
  
In order for your student to safely purchase food in the cafeteria, parents/guardians must contact Kelsey Gartner, Nutrition/Garden Coordinator, at 610-889-2125, ext. 52167 after the completed physician form has been returned
to the school nurse.

Medical Statement for Children with Special Dietary Needs

Each special dietary request must be supported by a statement explaining the requested food substitution and must be signed by a recognized medical authority. The Medical Statement must include:

  • An identification of the medical or other special dietary condition which restricts the child’s diet;
  • The food or foods to be omitted from the child’s diet; and
  • The food or choice of foods to be substituted. 

If we do not receive a medical statement from a recognized medical authority, your child will receive a regular lunch tray.  Medical statements completed by parents or guardians will not be accepted.
