VIRTUAL SCHOOL STUDENTS
C.E.P. - Community Eligibility Provision
Webster County Schools will continue to take part in the USDA's Community Eligibility Program by offering free meals to all of our students! This program allows each student to receive one free breakfast and one free lunch daily when in school or during out of seat learning. There is no need to complete Free/Reduced meal applications to receive the free meals for the school year.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call Tammy Holcomb, Director of Child Nutrition at 304.847.5638 extension 2205.
Webster County Schools adheres to specific USDA guidelines in providing special diet accommodations for students. In accordance with the criteria set forth in 7 CFR Part 15b, those students who are unable to eat the school meal due to a disability/medical need/or impairment are accommodated, at no additional charge. Please review the following information if your child requires special diet consideration.
Process for Requesting Accommodations for Special Dietary Needs
The steps in the process to request special accommodations are:
parent(s)/guardian(s) must complete the Special Dietary Needs Medical Form and return to the school nurse as soon as possible.
the nurse will meet with the cafeteria manager and the request will be reviewed and processed.
If additional information is needed, the form may be returned to the parent/guardian. (For example, the Medical Statement form must be signed by an authorized physician if the substitutions fall outside of the USDA meal pattern. Almond milk is not on the USDA's substitution list. Therefore, a request for almond milk would need a medical statement signed by a physician.)
accommodations will be made according to the requirements.
Special Dietary Needs and Allergies Contact
The safety of your child comes first. If you have a child with a disability/medical need or impairment that affects their diet, please submit your request for accommodation by completing this form and submitting to your child’s school.
