Food & Nutrition Services Food Allergy Information for Cafeteria 2022-23
The following outlines Great Valley School District Food & Nutrition Services’ process for accommodating students with disabilities and special dietary needs:
- It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to communicate all food allergies to the school nurse. The Food & Nutrition Services dietitian records the allergens and creates an alert in the Point of Sale system so that an alert is indicated during each transaction in the cafeteria.
- Parents/guardians may contact Great Valley School District Food & Nutrition Services to discuss modifications for their students on a case-by-case basis when requests are supported by a written statement from a state licensed medical authority.
Medical Plan of Care for School Food Service
The Medical Plan of Care for School Food Service may be used to obtain the required information from the licensed medical authority. For this purpose, a state licensed medical authority in Pennsylvania includes:
- Physician assistant,
- Certified registered nurse practitioner, or
- An explanation of how the child's physical or mental impairment restricts the child's diet;
- An explanation of what must be done to accommodate the child; and
- The food or foods to be omitted and recommended alternatives, if appropriate.
