Federal regulations state that “schools shall make substitutions in foods… for students who are considered handicapped… and whose handicap restricts their diet. NPS will accommodate special diets according to the following guidelines.
Food Allergies – Food substitutions will be made as required by the child’s physician for allergies covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act. A medical statement form is required as well as advance notification of the days the child will be eating lunch at school. All Medical Statement Forms must be updated at or before the beginning of each school year. Common allergens are listed for each item in Nutrislice.
Vegetarianism – A meatless option is offered daily at the elementary level and is listed on the menu. Meatless options are also offered daily in the middle and high schools. Families may contact Food Service for further information as to what options are available in the middle and high schools.
