All requests for special nutritional needs must be submitted annually to School Nutrition Services on a CMS Diet Order Form with a signature from a licensed medical doctor (MD) or a recognized medical authority.
Forms must be submitted at the beginning of each school year and each time a student's diagnosis or change of treatment is indicated during the school year. A current CMS Diet Order form is now available by clicking on the link below. You can also obtain a copy from your cafeteria manager. Incomplete forms cannot be processed and will be returned to the parent/guardian for completion.
Upon receipt of each completed form, School Nutrition will modify menus and instruct cafeteria managers in regards to each special diet. A registered dietitian on staff supervises the management of all special nutritional needs. Parents are encouraged to review with their child appropriate food choices from the menu.
Families desiring to manage diabetes, food allergies, etc., without submitting a diet order form, may view information regarding nutrition, carbohydrate content and major food allergies by visiting the Menus, Carbohydrates and Allergens link on the left.
CMS School Nutrition does not purchase or serve peanuts or peanut containing products; therefore, a diet order form only specifying a peanut allergy is not needed.
If you have questions or concerns about our program, please feel free to call the School Nutrition Services weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at (980) 344-0242 or (980)344-0210.
