Food Allergies/Special Dietary Needs

There are students who have special dietary needs and/or are allergic to certain foods or ingredients (e.g., peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, milk, etc.). When exposed to an allergen, affected students may experience shortness of breath, wheezing, difficulty breathing, difficulty talking or swallowing, hives, itching, swelling, shock, or asthma. Students will not be excluded from school activities nor otherwise discriminated against, harassed, intimidated, or bullied because of their food allergy.

Please help keep all of students safe and healthy at school by keeping in mind the following:

  1. Parents are responsible for notifying the principal or school nurse, in writing, regarding their child’s food allergies or other special dietary needs.

  2. When a student’s food allergy or food intolerance substantially limits one or more major life activities, they may be evaluated to determine if accommodations pursuant to Section 504 are required.

  3. The school may designate allergen-free area(s) to ensure students with allergies are safe.

  4. Students should not share or exchange meals or utensils with other students.

  5. Without identifying the student, the principal or teacher may notify parents of other students in the class that a student is allergic to a specific food and may request that certain foods not be provided at class parties or other school events.

  6. Parents are encouraged to bring non-food items, such as stickers or pencils, for school celebrations in lieu of food items which present a challenge for students with food allergies.

  7. When sending food for others to consume, do not send any foods that do not have food labels. 


Bringing Food from Home

At the discretion of individual classroom teachers, some classes may allow healthy snacks and water bottles in the classroom. A teacher may ask the student to throw out any food or beverage brought to the classroom if it becomes a disruption. Food and beverages are never allowed in the theater and computer labs.  

  • For safety and security reasons, students are not allowed to bring food items/baked goods from home in quantities intended to share with other students.  

  • Students may not sell any food or drink item on campus that is not part of a school-sanctioned and approved event.

  • Students are not permitted to receive any commercial food deliveries at school (pizza, Uber Eats, Grubhub, Door Dash, Postmates, etc.).

  • Parents are encouraged to send their student to school with lunch.  In the event that a parent must deliver lunch to their student, the delivery must be made at least thirty (30) minutes before the lunch period. Lunch deliveries for multiple students (e.g., pizza for a group of students) will NOT be accepted.
