Nutrition, Ingredients & Wellness Resources
Please note -
- All LIFE-THREATENING FOOD ALLERGIES need to be addressed directly with the school nurse.
- As part of the National School Lunch Program our students are offered a variety of choices each day. If your student does not have a life threatening allergy or life threatening medical condition he/she should choose an appropriate substitution from the items on the menu that day.
- Remember: For life Threatening Allergies and Medical Conditions, meals from home provide the safest option.
In addition to our regular vendors, as part of the National School Lunch Program, we also utilize USDA Commodity Items. It is not uncommon for our regular vendor to be out of a particular product and to substitute a different but similar product. We do not always know this in advance. Menus, food items, descriptions, ingredients, allergen lists, food preparation methods, and other details regarding the food are subject to frequent changes.Wellness Resources:In accordance with Federal civil rights law and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) civil rights regulations and policies, the USDA, its Agencies, offices, and employees, and institutions participating in or administering USDA programs are prohibited from discriminating based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity in any program or activity conducted or funded by USDA.
