ACCOMODATING CHILDREN WITH A DISABILITY
The Child Nutrition Services Department at Bonsall Unified School District will provide food substitutions to a child with a disability when the need for a substitution is supported by a completed CDE medical statement form that is signed by a licensed physician, a physician assistant, or a nurse practitioner.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Amendments Act considers anything that substantially limits one or more major life activities a disability.
ACCOMODATING CHILDREN WITHOUT A DISABILITY
The Child Nutrition Services Department at Bonsall Unified School District is not required, but will attempt to, provide food substitutions to a child with a special dietary preference that is not considered a disability. An individual who does not have a disability, but is unable to consume a particular food because of a non-disability reason such as religious, ethnic, or moral reasons, is considered to have a food preference. All meals served to students with a food preference MUST meet USDA meal pattern requirements in order to qualify for reimbursement. These accommodations will be considered on a case by case basis.
Please return completed forms to Kursten Orr, Child Nutrition Services Director, via email, mail, or in person.
