Food Allergies

USD 383 is committed to the safety and health of all students. Many of our students suffer from environmental, medical, or food-related allergies. We strive to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for students with allergies and reduce the likelihood of severe or potentially life-threatening allergic reactions. We want to ensure a rapid and effective response in the case of a severe or potentially life-threatening allergic reaction.  Requirements for meal modification requests through food service vary depending on whether a student has a disability or whether it is a food allergy or intolerance that does not rise to the level of a disability. Food Service will make meal modifications prescribed by a licensed physician when a student has a disability. (See the definition of disability on the meal modification form). When a student has a food allergy or intolerance, or other medical condition that does not rise to the level of a disability, food service has the option of making a meal modification requested by a medical authority.

Meal modifications will continue until the licensed physician or medical authority requests that it be changed or stopped (Form 19-C Discontinuation of School Meal Modifications Form).
