The Food Allergy/Disability Substitution Request form must be completed in its entirety and signed/dated by the student’s physician.  This form needs to be returned to:  Frisco ISD Child Nutrition, Attn:  District Dietitians, 12050 Rolater Road, Frisco, Texas 75035, or by email to: specialdiets@friscoisd.org.  You do not need to provide a new form each year unless there is a change in your student’s allergies.  It is your responsibility to renew this form should your child’s nutritional needs change.  To remove allergy restrictions from this student’s account, you must submit a signed note stating the student no longer has the food allergy or intolerance.  If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Duce at 469-633-6987 or Gillian Morrison at 469-633-0830.

Food Allergy Substitution Request Form
Allergens List

Completion of the Food Allergy/Disability Substitution Request form does not automatically guarantee that an allergen-free meal will be available daily without request.  It is the parent or guardian’s responsibility to review the menus and Allergen List, and assist their child in selecting safe and appropriate menu options.  Our online menus can also be filtered by special diets, and are located at frisco.nutrislice.com.  If your child is unable to make menu selections due to their diet restrictions, please contact our dietitians at specialdiets@friscoisd.org for assistance.

Physical impairments, including food allergies, that result in a severe, life-threatening (anaphylactic) reaction, and/or substantially limit one or more major life activities are considered a disability and an appropriate prescribed food substitution will be made with a licensed physician’s assessment.
All other food allergies, intolerances, and preferences not included in the scope of this definition are not identified as a disability under either Section 605 of the Rehabilitation Act or Part B of IDEA.  The Child Nutrition department, at their discretion, may make food substitutions for individual children who do not have a disability but who are medically certified as having a special medical or dietary need.  A medical statement must be submitted and decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis.
The Child Nutrition Program maintains an email distribution list for anyone interested in menu changes that could impact student’s food allergies or special dietary needs.  If you would like to be included on this distribution list, please send an email to specialdiets@friscoisd.org. Those who elect to be included will receive occasional email updates regarding product changes or recipe ingredient changes.  The email updates are to be used as a resource guide only.  It is not a guarantee of information regarding all changes to ingredients in all foods or menu items.  Products stocked by Frisco ISD may change due to supplier changes or substitutions.  Manufacturers may also change formulation and ingredient profiles without the knowledge of the Frisco ISD Child Nutrition Department.  The information provided in the email updates are not intended as a substitute for advice from your physician or other healthcare professional.
