FAQs

What if my student has a food allergy?

   You can... 

  1. Contact your school's nurse to retrieve a Medical Statement to Request Special Meals and/or Accommodation Form (Meal Request Form) to be filled out by a doctor or physician and return back to school's nurse. 
  2. Contact the Food & Nutrition Services at the District Office to retrieve a Medical Statement to Request Special Meals and/or Accommodation Form (Meal Request Form) to be filled out by a doctor or physician. 

After a Meal Request Form is filled out and turned in, our department will contact the parent or possibly the medical authority for further clarification. Then, a special meal or substitution to the meal may be put in place for your student. 

 

What if my student prefers to drink a nondairy beverage (such as soy milk)?

School nutrition programs are allowed to offer nondairy beverages that meets the USDA nutrition standards for milk substitutes. Pajaro Valley Unified School District is offering soy milk upon request. In addition to another acceptable milk option, we also offer lactose-free milk upon request. 

     You can...

  1. Have a parent fill out a milk substitution form available in your student's cafeteria or here (Milk Substitution Form)
  2. Turn it into your student's cafeteria and allow at least 2 days for the cafeteria staff to order.
