Accommodating Students with Medical Disabilities & Special Dietary Needs

 

The Child Nutrition Program must provide reasonable accommodations for reimbursable meals at no charge when a student's disability restricts his/her diet and the disability is supported by a medical statement signed by a medical authority who is licensed by the State of Texas to write medical prescriptions.  See Medical Statement for Children with Special Dietary Needs form for more information.

The Child Nutrition Program will make reasonable efforts to provide accommodations for students without a medical disability, i.e. intolerances or allergies.  Such determinations will be made on a case by case basis.  Parents or guardians must complete the Medical Statement for Children with Special Dietary Needs form and submit to the respective campus nurse or the program office.  Program office will evaluate request and will make reasonable efforts to provide modifications.  

Be advised that requests may take up to 5-7 business days to be processed.  Additional questions should be directed to the program office at 956-716-6792.
