Allergy Information

The Food and Nutrition Services Department for Jefferson County Public Schools, provides meals to the district's 86,000 plus students through participation in the USDA School Lunch and Breakfast Programs. Meals are planned to be in compliance with all USDA rules and regulations while striving to provide a variety of new and favorite food products.

USDA regulations 7 CFR Part 15b allows us to make modifications to the menu plan if your child has a food allergy or intolerance that rises to the level of being a "major life activity". A child with a disability may be provided substitutions in foods when that need is supported by completion of a Colorado Department of Education SD-1 form (linked below) which requires a statement signed by an approved medical professional.
