Frequently Asked Questions

How do you handle dietary restrictions and food allergies?

Keystone Science School prides ourselves on our ability to handle a wide variety of dietary restrictions. Food is incredibly important to every child whether it’s their nourishment or their safety. We make sure that every student gets enough nourishing food so that they can have a successful outdoor education experience. We are able to accommodate many specialty diets and food-related allergies. It is very important that each parent completes the Medical History Form. We use the information presented in this form when developing our menu and plan to provide food for each participating group. For more specific questions about diet, food-related allergies or meal planning for your child’s field trip please call us at (970) 468-2098 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
