Allergy Forms

Our Nutrition Services Department understands the increasing prevalence of life threatening allergies amongst school populations. Recognizing the risk of accidental exposure to allergens can be reduced in the school setting.
If your student has a life threatening food allergy, or a disability related to food, please have your physician complete this form and submit it to Nutrition Services so proper substitutions can be arranged.
