In order to modify the school meal, we must have a written Medical Statement on file signed by a licensed medical provider (physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner). The statement must identify:
• The child’s disability
• Explanation of how the disability restricts the child’s diet
• The major life activity affected by the disability
• The food(s) to be omitted, texture modifications and recommended substitutions.
Please submit all completed medical statements and diet accommodation requests to Margaret McClaskey, email@example.com and your district school nurse.
Dietary modification forms must be reviewed and approved by the DDS before accommodations can be made.
