Tips for Parents
Tips for Parents
Parents are encouraged to make payments online through their Family Access Account. This will allow your child to maximize his or her time for eating a meal. If you believe your household qualifies for a meal benefit please complete a meal application. To help students develop/maintain a healthy lifestyle, the Child Nutrition Services Program offers sessions to students throughout the school day. Below are just a few programs that we have implemented and continue to grow:
Special Dietary Needs
St. Lucie Public Schools wants to be a resource for your child’s menu selections when it comes to special needs. USDA regulation requires that students’ whose disabilities restrict their diets, substitutions or modifications can be made through the school meals program. Food allergies that are life threatening are defined as a disability under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. An example would be a food allergy resulting in an anaphylactic reaction.
Students with Non-Life Threatening Dietary Needs
The USDA permits the Child Nutrition Services Program to make a food substitution, at their discretion, for individual children who do not have a medically documented disability, but who are medically certified as having a special medical or dietary need. The Child Nutrition Services Department will review all request for accommodations without a disability; however, these accommodations are based on the diet order submitted by a license physician. For any modifications made to a child’s diet through the Child Nutrition Program must have a completed diet order prior to the modification being implemented. This information is necessary for the Child Nutrition Services Department to be able to accurately make an accommodation or modify a student’s meal in any manner.
For additional information on providing meal accommodations, please contact Eliezer Archange – Child Nutrition Services Registered Dietician at 772.429.6191.
