Food Allergies and Special Diets

  • The Food Service Department takes allergies, food safety, and student health very seriously. We want to ensure that your child receives the best care possible while at school.  Special Diets are provided to students with a disability or medical condition that limits a major life activity such as breathing or learning; or for students with severe or life-threatening food allergies.

    A current RCSD Special Dietary Request Form must be completed and signed by Medical Authority. This form must be completed in its entirety and returned to the school nurse.  If the form is not complete, the special diet cannot be processed.  This form must be updated annually.

    RCSD Department of Food Services will make necessary substitutions available once approval is obtained from a licensed physician through dietary orders.  Specialized menus may be developed in coordination with staff and the Registered Dietitian as needed.
