Students with Disability

Frisco ISD Child Nutrition strives to offer healthy, well-balanced meals that are required to meet strict nutritional guidelines and standards for the National School Breakfast and Lunch programs overseen by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA). We are able to provide an alternate menu, for students with a medical disability once we receive documentation signed by a medical authority licensed to write prescriptions by the state.

Meal Accommodations are required for students that have:

  • A physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities including eating. For Example: Digestion is an example of a bodily function that is a major life activity. A student whose digestion is impaired by lactose intolerance may be a person with a disability regardless of whether or not consuming milk causes student severe distress.

  • Food allergies that may result in severe, life-threatening (anaphylactic) reactions

All Special Diet Accommodation forms can be emailed directly to specialdiets@friscoisd.org, or submitted directly to the school nurse or café. A new form is not required each year, however, any changes to a student’s health needs must be updated and include a signed statement from a licensed physician or health-care provider.

Students Without a Disability

Menu accommodations cannot be made for personal requests, including personal and religious preferences. However, menus are planned with a variety of options including at least one vegetarian option daily which may include egg or cheese. The menu's nutrition information is available at School Cafe to help students and parents plan meals in ways that fit their preferences.

A restriction can be added to your student's account to alert the Cafe staff of your student’s dietary preference. However, it is the student's responsibility to choose foods that fit their dietary needs. If you would like to add a restriction to your student's account regarding specific eating preferences (i.e., vegetarian, no pork, etc.) please complete an Account Restriction Form and return the form via email to friscocafe@friscoisd.org.

Please note: if you are restricting your student from purchasing anything from the account, if student comes to school without food, if food is damaged/destroyed during the school day, or emergency meals are required to be served at this campus, student will be allowed to purchase a meal.
