  • Students with Food Intolerances and Mild Allergies

    If your child has special food needs, please contact our Registered Dietitian at 302-529-3110 to set up a meeting.  After the meeting, your child's information will be entered into the computer register system and shared with the nurse.  When your child checks out in the cafeteria line, the cashier will see a message that the child cannot have a specific food item. The cashier will help your child make a different healthy choice instead.

     

    Students with Severe Food Allergies

    If your child has special dietary requirements and/or if your child requires the use of an epi-pen for a severe food allergy and is planning to buy meals at school, please contact our Registered Dietitian at 302-529-3110.  We will set up a meeting to introduce your child to the kitchen staff and outline his or her food issues.
