All meals served at Comanche ISD must meet nutrition standards established by the U.S. department of Agriculture. If a child has a disability, as determined by a doctor, and the disability prevents the child from eating the regular school meal, the school will make substitutions prescribed by the doctor. If a substitution is needed, there will be no extra charge for the meal.  Special dietary needs policy is listed below.

Food Service Charging Procedures

Employees of Comanche ISD - Food service purchases must be paid in advance or at the time of purchase. District employees are expected to pay for their meals in a timely manner. A $15 charge limit will be implemented. Once an employee reaches the $15 limit, he/she must pay on a daily basis for food service items. 

Students of Comanche ISD - Food service purchases must be paid in advance or at the time of purchase. Students are expected to pay for this service in a timely manner and a $10.00 charge limit for all full price students and $2.00 for reduced students will be implemented.

Once a student exceeds their charge limit, the following policy will take affect..........At lunch, students can choose any of the offered reimbursable meal menued and at breakfast, students will be offered only the cereal meal menued.

Also, at the time a full price student reaches a negative balance of $10 and and reduced priced student reaches $2, the food service office will also begin reaching out personally to the households with a phone call.  We will also send a copy of the negative balance report to the campus principals and campus counselors for their assistance in collecting the negative balances.

The district will also continue sending out automated phone calls to all parents with low or negative balances 2-4 times a week.

Special Dietary Needs of Students

All meals served at Comanche ISD must meet nutrition standards established by the U.S. department of Agriculture. If a child has a disability, as determined by a doctor, and the disability prevents the child from eating the regular school meal, the school will make substitutions prescribed by the doctor. If a substitution is needed, there will be no extra charge for the meal.  Special dietary needs policy is listed below.

Child Nutrition Services may make reasonable accommodations for students who are not disabled, but who are unable to consume a food item because of medical or other special dietary needs.  Such determinations will be made on a case by case basis when supported by a statement (using the Medical Statement form), signed by a recognized medical authority (licensed physicians, physician’s assistant, or nurse practitioner).  This provision covers those students who have allergies or food intolerances but do not have life-threatening or anaphylactic reaction.

Responsibilities of Parents/Guardians

Parents/Guardians must provide a completed Medical Statement form that includes the following:

  • The student’s disability or medical condition
  • The food(s) to be omitted and the suggested substitutions
  • Signature of appropriate medical authority and date

To ensure accurate meal service, parents are requested to:

  • Communicate the student’s special dietary need to the school nurse and Food Service Office when the student transfers or promotes to a different school or district
  • Bring in an updated medical statement to report any updates or changes to the original medical statement should any dietary changes occur.

Child Nutrition Services makes a conservative approach to food allergies and includes but is not limited to all foods that may contain trace amounts of the top eight allergens: soy, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, egg and wheat.  Request for changes in dietary accommodations or needs should be requested in writing to the Child Nutrition Specialist and include the recognized medical authority signature and date.
