Shelton's Dietary Accommodations

Dietary Accommodations

Dietary Accommodations

It is our goal to provide students with the safest food and eating environment possible. Working together with parents, school nurses, and other student support staff we can help create a plan to meet special dietary needs. 

Please complete the "Request for Special Dietary Accommodations" form to indicate the need for special dietary restrictions for your student. This form is used to communicate specific allergies and medically necessary food substitutions with the School Nurses and our Food Service staff Food Services is unable to make food substitutions for personal or religious preferences. 

The district is required to have the "Request for Special Dietary Accommodations" form on file, completed and signed by a recognized medical authority to make any substitutions to your student's meal. Without this form, your student will be served the standard meal options provided to all students during breakfast and lunch. 

Have your health care provider complete the required form and return it to your child's school or Food Services as soon as possible, so that we may begin planning for substitution. Often, further contact with parents/guardians and medical professionals is required to ensure appropriate modifications are made available. Until a determination has been made and a plan has been developed and communicated with our kitchen staff, parents are responsible for providing appropriate food for their child. You will be notified as soon as the plan is ready to implement. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Food Services at 360-426- 2533.
