For parents with busy morning schedules, it’s sometimes difficult to ensure that kids are eating a healthy breakfast before they head off to school. Children often aren’t ready to eat right after waking up, and it can be challenging to find nutritious breakfast foods they like. Some kids refuse breakfast at home and discover that they are hungry when they arrive at school. The School Breakfast Program provides a great option for parents.
As you may know, a great breakfast is offered for all students at school. Studies have proven that kids who eat breakfast achieve higher academic scores, are more alert in class, visit the school nurse less often, and are better behaved in school. If morning meals are difficult for your family, let the School Breakfast Program help you out!

What if my child has food allergies or dietary special needs, will you modify meals?
Federal regulations require the school to receive written instructions from an appropriate medical authority before the school can modify your child's meals. A recognized medical authority must complete one of the following forms to document your child's current special dietary needs.
All parents using the meal modification forms MUST contact Gina Lee, Director of Food Services, to set up an appointment to review the dietary needs of their students.
The medical authority must list on the form all foods that are to be eliminated from the diet and foods that may be substituted.
The appropriate medical statement should be dated no earlier than July 1, 2016. To ensure your student's special dietary needs are met on the first day of school, the parent/guardian MUST contact Gina Lee, Director of Food Services, to make an appointment to go over the student's dietary needs for the 2016-17 school year. Contact Gina Lee at the Food Service office, 316-554-2219.
Important: Please sign the appropriate medical statement. If the school staff need additional information to clarify how to carry out the diet prescription, your signature is required for the physician or medical authority to share information with the school.
