ABCCA MEAL PROGRAM

ABC Children’s Academy participates in the Federally Funded Child Nutrition Program and we provide balanced meals and snacks for your child daily. No food may be brought to the center unless prior arrangements are made with the Director of your county. This is to protect other children who have allergies and to maintain compliance with CACFP that all children receive a well-balanced meal. Enrollment into this facility is agreement of this meal policy.

Food Sensitivity

Peanut Butter: Due to the large amount of Peanut Allergies, we are not allowing Peanut Butter in the Buildings. However, Families should be aware that we may have products with Peanut oils in them.

Allergies: A list of your child’s allergies shall be kept in the classroom, as well as with the Nutrition staff, under a cover sheet. We make sure outside food is not accepted to protect those children with allergies.

Exclusion or Segregation of Students shall not occur for children with allergies. A Medical Need must be described on Doctor’s Note to exclude foods from children’s meals.

Parents rights under IDEA

The federal regulations for IDEA 2004 include a section (Subpart E) called Procedural Safeguards. These safeguards are designed to protect the rights of parents and their child with a disability and, at the same time, give families and school systems several mechanisms by which to resolve their disputes.
