Forms

Special Dietary Accommodations Form  (OSPI Child Nutrition Programs)

USDA Child Nutrition Programs support access to healthy meals to all students including those with special dietary needs.  USDA regulations specify that all food substitutions must be signed by a state recognized medical authority.  We cannot guarantee substitutions will be available without the dietary request form or a medical statement on file.

Students who are requesting substitutions or special accommodations must complete the special dietary request form below.

Field Trip Sack Lunch Order Form

Sack lunches are available to all students on field trips. Your teacher should provide a form for you, or you can print and return the form to your school office or teacher. We prefer to receive notices five days before the field trip. Students may use their meal account for payment.

Meal Account Restriction Request Form

You can restrict your child’s meal account purchases; for example, no charging, no breakfast, cash only a la carte.

If you would like to restrict your child’s meal account purchase options, please complete the form or contact our Skyward Meal Account Specialist with details: nutrition@battlegroundps.org  or  (360) 885-6653.

Please note: If your student has allergy (dietary) restrictions, please go through your school nurse to ensure all personnel are adequately notified.

Refund or Transfer Funds Request Form

You can request a refund or transfer of unused funds left in your child’s meal account.

If your student is changing schools but staying within Battle Ground School District, their meal account will follow them.  If you are leaving the school district, we cannot transfer funds to another school district.

You have three options for unused money left in meal accounts:

  • Transfer funds to another student that is currently enrolled in Battle Ground Public Schools.
  • Refund Check: Please complete a form or contact us: nutrition@battlegroundps.org  or  (360) 885-6653.
  • Donation: Request to donate to a specific student or give me guidelines to follow.

Meal Account PIN Card

Every student is given a meal account during registration within our district.  When the student purchases a meal, the student will enter their Unique PIN (5-digits). Print the cards to assist your student in learning their PIN or practice with them on your computer keypad.
