Students with Food Restrictions

Oakland Avenue Charter School believes it is our responsibility to serve our students with respect and dignity. OACS is aware that there are cultures and religions that do not eat specific ingredients which may be present in some of the food we serve. We are also aware that certain students many have sensitivities or intolerance to certain food products.

We are able to offer alternative products for those students whose parents/guardians have filed a form in advance clearly dictating those restrictions. If the restrictions are of a medical nature, then a doctor’s statement must be attached. We cannot anticipate the needs of all students and unless we are aware in advance of these restrictions, we may not be able to accommodate all students and will have to offer the "alternative meal" which consists of a cheese or peanut butter sandwich.

We encourage you to file the appropriate form or letter by the first day of school.
