Special Dietary Needs of Students
All meals served at Comanche ISD must meet nutrition standards
established by the U.S. department of Agriculture. If a child has a
disability, as determined by a doctor, and the disability prevents the
child from eating the regular school meal, the school will make
substitutions prescribed by the doctor. If a substitution is needed,
there will be no extra charge for the meal. Special dietary needs
policy is listed below.
Child Nutrition Services may make
reasonable accommodations for students who are not disabled, but who are
unable to consume a food item because of medical or other special
dietary needs. Such determinations will be made on a case by case basis
when supported by a statement (using the Medical Statement form),
signed by a recognized medical authority (licensed physicians,
physician’s assistant, or nurse practitioner). This provision covers
those students who have allergies or food intolerances but do not have
life-threatening or anaphylactic reaction.

requested in writing to the Child Nutrition Specialist and include the
recognized medical authority signature and date.
