Our DD is entering Middle School and, after having received Section 504 designation, we have been working with the school district to create a series of documents related to LTFAs. Some of the other documents include a Section 504 plan, an IHP, an Emergency Plan, a "School Activities Planning Sheet". This purpose of this document is to state the safety procedures that will be used by cafeteria staff.

Feedback is appreciated.

[b]Cafeteria Procedures
_____ Middle School
2005-2006[/b]

The following procedures will be followed by the cafeteria staff to ensure the health and safety of students with peanut allergies who are participating in the school lunch program.

1. Type A lunches will not include peanuts, peanut butter, tree nuts, and peanut and tree nut derivatives, oils, and by-products.
2. Peanut butter sandwiches will only be served as an a la carte item which is wrapped individually in plastic wrap.
3. To eliminate cross-contamination, peanut butter sandwiches will only be prepared in the designated preparation station in the school kitchen using designated utensils. These designated utensils will not be used to prepare any other food items and will be washed with soap and hot water. No other food items will be prepared in the preparation station that has been designated for peanut butter sandwiches.
4. Students will clean up after themselves using disposable towels under the supervision of staff. Students with severe food allergies will not wash tables. Staff will clean cafeteria tables with disinfectant spray cleaner and disposable cloths.
5. Until students with severe allergies have determined at which table they want to eat lunch, a staff member will be assigned (Ms. ___) to make sure the table and chairs are clean. All teacher assistants will be trained to serve as substitute monitors.
6. In the event that the student with a severe allergy has chosen a regular cafeteria table, the custodian will clean the table and chairs between lunch shifts, prior to the students
