Special Dietary Needs
DISABILITY SPECIAL DIET REQUESTS
Accommodations for students with special dietary needs are available at each school campus. Federal and State regulations require a completed and current diet prescription form for any type of change or substitution to the student’s diet. The parent/guardian must submit a current form each school year.
The special diet prescription form has to be completed and signed by your child’s physician or medical authority. Special diet requests for your child will not be processed until a 2019-2020 form is received. If you have questions regarding the form please contact the Food Service Office at (504) 444-2696.
**PLEASE NOTE** If a student cannot have fluid milk due to a medical diagnosis, the Physician must prescribe the milk substitute on the Diet Prescription Form. The following substitutions are available 4 oz. 100% fruit juice, bottled water, lactaid and soy milk.
NON-DISABILITY SPECIAL DIET REQUESTS
Special diet requests for personal reasons (i.e., ethnic or religious) without a recognized medical disability may be accommodated at the discretion of the Food Service Director. The ISL Food Services Department is not required to make substitutions for non-medical reasons. However, students are allowed to refuse food items within the guidelines of offer vs. serve.
For your convenience, the diet prescription form is listed below
Note: An updated form must be submitted each school year.
- Check cafeteria balance & purchases
- Receive low balance alerts
- Set up automatic payments
- Pay for school-related items
The procedure for paying for meals is to PRE-PAY by the day, week, month, or year. A check, cash, or money order should be sent in a sealed envelope with the student’s first and last name including the amount enclosed and school campus written on the outside of the envelope. CASH PAYMENTS ARE HIGHLY DISCOURAGED AND THE BURDEN OF PROOF IS ON THE PAYER IF HE/SHE CHOOSES TO USE CASH FOR PAYMENT. There is a $35 NSF fee for each returned check. Meal payment forms are located in the front office of each school or online at www.isl-edu.org/menu.
Money MUST be available in the meal account or paid at the point of service. This policy includes everyone: students, staff, and visitors. Money remaining in the account at the end of the school year will carry over to the following school year.
Student meal account funds cannot be used to pay for guest meals which include parent/guardian meals.
DELINQUENT MEAL ACCOUNT AND ALTERNATIVE MEALS
Accounts with delinquent balances of $25 or more will be subject to scheduled meal denial.
PROCEDURES FOR PROVIDING ALTERNATIVE MEALS
When an account is delinquent (a balance owed of greater than $25), the parent/guardian will be contacted by the Director from the Food Service Department to inform them that the student’s account is overdrawn and that money must be placed in the student’s account immediately. Students will be served an alternative snack for breakfast and/or lunch if payment has not been received within two days of the call or by a time agreed upon by the Food Services Director and the parent/guardian.
Upon the third instance during a single school year of an elementary or middle school student being denied a regular meal during school hours, the Food Service Department shall contact the Office of Community Services within the Department of Social Services to report the failure of the parent or guardian to pay for meals, which has resulted in repeated denials of meals during school hours.
Student Meal Account Refund
Meal Account balances will automatically carry over to the next school year for returning students.
Students enrolled for the entire current School year, but not returning the following school year, will receive a refund only upon request.
Student meal account refunds are granted upon request when a student graduates, leaves the school district, or if a special circumstance necessitates the refund. Parents/guardians may request a refund by completing the Meal Account Refund request form and send to International School of Louisiana 1400 Camp St. New Orleans, LA 70130 Attn: Food Services or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please allow 7-10 days for processing.
