Nutritional Information and Special Diets

Special Diets
Special Diets are provided to students with a disability or medical condition that limits a major life activity such as breathing or learning; or to students with severe or life-threatening food allergies.

A current LAUSD Distance Learning Medical Statement to request a Special Diet must be completed and signed by Medical Authority. This form must be completed in its entirety and returned to school cafeteria.  The Food Services Manager will complete their section of the form, ensure it is complete and then submit it to the Nutrition Specialist for assessment and/or completion.  This form must be updated annually.

Unfortunately, LAUSD is unable to accommodate special diets based on personal preferences or religious convictions. 

Soy Milk
Parents/Guardians may request soy milk for their child as a substitute for fluid milk due to medical or other special dietary needs.  Distance Learning Parent/Guardian Request to Substitute Soy Milk for Fluid Milk Form must be completed and given to the School Food Service Manager.  A medical authority signature is not required for this form.  The completed form will be kept on file in the school cafeteria.
