    Food Allergies

     
    Keeping students with life-threatening food allergies safe at school requires a collaborative effort between students, parents, staff and physicians.  Please schedule a conference with your school nurse if your child has a life-threatening food allergy and complete the Food Allergy Packet below.
     
    If your child requires accomodations, restrictions and or substitions in the classroom or cafeteria, please complete the "Food Allergy Evaluation and Substition Form" found below and return it to the school nurse.  All forms will be forwarded to the 504 committee for review and approval and parents will be notified of the meeting.  Parents will be required to provide lunches for their child until all documentation is complete and a 504 plan is in place.
