The SAISD Child Nutrition Services (CNS) Department requires a Special Diet Request Form for any student with a medical disability or a medical condition requiring special dietary accommodations:

Special Diet Request Form 2023-2024 English

Special Diet Request Form 2023-2024 Spanish

Special Diet Request Form 2024-2025 English

Special Diet Request Form 2024-2025 Spanish

The SAISD CNS Department follows federal and state guidelines and will make every attempt to reasonably accommodate students with special dietary needs, according to the instructions below:

  1. A Special Diet Request Form MUST be completed for EVERY school year.

  2. Please submit the form to the SAISD Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) via the student’s campus nurse; or you may fax the form directly to the SAISD RDN at 210-228-3157.

  3. Special Diet requests will be reviewed by the SAISD RDN or the Head Start Nutritionist.

  4. Accommodations will be processed by the SAISD RDN or the Head Start Nutritionist in accordance with federal and state guidelines.

  5. The school’s food service staff is unable to make any special diet accommodations until the request is processed and implemented by the SAISD RDN or the Head Start Nutritionist.

  6. A special diet request may take up to 2 weeks to implement.  However, at the beginning of the school year the implementation period may be longer due to the very high number of requests that are received at this time.  During the implementation period, the parent/guardian of the student is responsible for providing the special diet.

  7. The SAISD CNS staff will make every attempt to REASONABLY accommodate students when dietary restrictions are not life threatening.

  8. The student’s campus nurse will be notified when a special diet request has been implemented; if you would like to know if your child’s special diet has been implemented, please contact your child’s campus nurse; or you may contact the SAISD RDN directly at 210-554-2290.

  9. It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to notify the SAISD CNS department if any changes occur or if the student transfers to another school.

  10. When a parent/guardian signs the Special Diet Request Form, he/she agrees to the special diet request made by the medical authority and gives the SAISD RDN permission to process the request as written; if you have any questions or concerns about how the medical authority completed the form for your child and would like to make changes, please contact the SAISD RDN at 210-554-2290.

  11. The SAISD CNS department has the right to contact the medical authority to clarify the medical request.

If you have additional questions, please contact Alyssa Garza at 210-554-2290.
