Special Meal Accommodations

If your child requires a special diet provided daily by the school cafeteria, a Medical Statement to Request Special Meals and/or Accommodations form must be submitted to the Child Nutrition Services department. The form must be filled out in English and signed by a U.S. licensed physician, physician’s assistant, or nurse practitioner.

 

To request a milk substitution due to a medical or other special dietary need, please complete the Parental Request for a Fluid Milk Substitution for School-Age Children form. Please note, this form is not intended to accommodate students who drink fluid milk substitutions, such as soy milk, due to taste preference.

 

Please be sure that all forms are filled out in their entirety before submission to ensure special diets are  implemented in a timely manner.

 

Special meal accommodations and milk substitution requests must be turned in every school year; they do not roll over from the previous year.

 

If your student changes schools, please notify the Child Nutrition Services office.

 

Send all forms directly to Brenda Marquez-Flores at bmarquez-flores@cypsd.org or in person at 9470 Moody Street, Cypress, CA 90630.
