I know that I read that a school cannot refuse to make accommodations for my PA DS because of "lack of funding", but I'm fearing that they will try. Any advice on this. Also, the only hot lunch that is safe for him to eat is Little Caeser's Pizza on Thursday's. Otherwise, we were told that they can't guarentee the safety of any of the hot lunches. During the 504 meeting, I would like to try to push for them to get something safe available every day to him (this was brought up before by another mom and she was told it was a cost factor). My concern is that if there ever comes a day where we need some type of assistance and he would qualify for the reduced price lunches (one never knows with our Michigan economy), he would be unable to buy anything other than the pizza, which I don't think is right. The new asst. principal suggested that I bring in cheese and crackers as a back-up, but I don't think that's good enough. What does everyone think about this? The one other issue I'm trying to decide whether or not I want to push is getting another lunch aid in the lunch room to be assigned to the peanut free table or at least the corner of the lunch room where the peanut free table is. Currently there are 190 some 1st graders and only four lunch aids. Any opinions and/or feedback is much appreciated!!!!!

Thanks,
Tracy
