Wellness Policy and Child Nutrition Website
Marshall County Schools has developed a Wellness Policy
that is focused on improving the health of students. The policy was established
with a health and wellness advisory council that includes teachers, parents,
students, administrators, guidance counselors and nurses. The key areas of the
wellness policy focus on nutrition education, physical activity and other
school based activities that promote student wellness. If you want to be involved with Marshall
County’s Wellness Policy, please contact Debbie Derico at 304-843-4448 extension
Marshall County Schools maintains a website for all your nutritional and wellness needs. This website will be your source for menus, nutritional information and wellness resources. You will be able to sign up to have the menus emailed to you on a monthly basis. Check it out at mcsbefit.com.
Substitutions Made for Students with Dietary Needs
Accommodations in meal services are available for Marshall
County School students with special dietary needs. Schools will make
substitutions in foods for students with dietary needs who are unable to
consume the regular meal because of medical or other special dietary
needs. These meals/substitutions will be
provided at no additional charge.
A Special Dietary Needs Medical Statement is required for us to make these accommodations. The Special Dietary Needs Medical Statement must be completed by a physician and completed annually. Substitutions will be made on a case-by-case basis. Contact your child’s school immediately to inform them of any special diet of food allergies or other needs. Substitutions cannot be made for vegetarian diets. Also, juice can only be substituted for milk when there is a disabling medical condition. The form can be obtained on the Child Nutrition website at mcsbefit.com or by calling the Office of Child Nutrition at 304-843-4400 extension 338.
