    What if my student has a different allergy/allergies?

    Choice #1 - Your family may utilize our online menus to filter by allergen and work with your student(s) to help them know what to self-select from the options that are available. Here are instructions to filter by allergen.The Nutrition Services Department is unable to aid students in self-selecting or monitor tray contents for students choosing to self-select from the main line. 

    Choice #2 - You will need your physician to complete a Special Diet Statement prior to receiving a prepared special diet meal. In this instance, your family will order meals in advance and your student will not go through the lunch line or self-select.
