STUDENT NUTRITION SERVICES

Pulaski County Special School District and the Student Nutrition Department care about Students and want every one of them to have an enjoyable experience at school. Our school district participates in the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture and is held to a high standard of accountability, good nutrition and safety. 

Eating breakfast and lunch will enable students to be better prepared to learn in the classroom. Breakfasts and lunches are provided in all PCSSD school cafeterias. Students are encouraged to participate in these nutritionally balanced programs; however, students may choose to bring meals from home. Plan ahead for your student; be sure to have a plan for the method of feeding your student(s) each day of the year and make sure everyone in your family knows the plan for what to do about meals.

MEAL MODIFICATIONS POLICY

A medical statement is required when a meal modification that is outside of the USDA Meal Pattern is requested, unless the school obtains written medical verification of the impairment during the IEP/504 Plan process. If a medical statement is needed please see your school nurse or cafeteria. 

The medical statement must include:

  • Information about the child’s physical or mental impairment that is sufficient to allow the school to understand how it restricts the child’s diet;

  • An explanation of what must be done to accommodate the child’s disability; 

  • The food or foods to be omitted and recommended alternatives, in the case of a modified meal.

NOTE: Some situations may require more information.
The medical statement must be signed by one of the following state-licensed healthcare professionals with prescriptive authority in Arkansas: physician, chiropractor, podiatrist, nurse practitioner, dentist, or physician assistant.

USDA IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY PROVIDER, EMPLOYER, AND LENDER.

CHARGE POLICY AND COLLECTIONS PROCEDURE

We must limit the occurrence of charging for meals to no more than three (3) charges to your student’s account.

It is the policy of Pulaski County Special School District to allow students to charge meals when money is unavailable and the student would otherwise have to miss meal service. This is a courtesy extended to the student and should not occur on a regular basis. Money owed to the district from meal charging will be carried over to the following year.

Further charging information can be found in your student handbook, or by calling Student Nutrition Administration office at 501.234.2300.

The differences between the adult and student prices are based on the USDA regulations. Students are subsidized for the meals and adults are not.

The following items are available to adults and non-students. They must be ordered and paid for by 9 a.m. A-la-carte items are available in Secondary schools only. In the case of late school openings because of inclement weather, breakfast will not be served. In the case of late buses breakfast will be served to those students. We will be glad to answer any questions concerning your student’s meal account by calling the Pulaski County Special School District Nutrition Services Office at 501.234.2300.
