Allergy Information


Nutrislice is a website we use to publish our menus. While it does list allergens, we ask all parents who have students with allergies to discuss them with the food services department directly. Parents should email the school kitchen manager either daily or weekly to order lunches. This ensures meals are created without the risk of cross-contact.  Please submit daily emails to the kitchen manager by 6 AM the day of, and copy on the correspondence.  

Substitution Note

There have been times that the global supply chain shortages have affected our ability to make our planned menus. We do our best to update the menus in advance, but last-minute changes are sometimes required. Additionally, there are substitutions sent to us to fulfill the items we purchase often.  Some of these substitutions have ingredients that will not be listed on the regular menu and could have potential allergens. This is why you must contact your student’s school kitchen manager as well as register allergens with your student’s school nurse.
