Special Meal Accommodations

This includes any student with a disability or food allergy. Below you can find what information should be included in the medical statement as well as the link to the required document.

No Cost for school meals for 2021-2022

  • All meals will continue to be offered at no cost to all OUSD scholars. No IDs or applications are required and parents or guardians may pick up meals without scholar(s) present.



    Please be advised that at this time all OUSD school cafeterias are not accepting electronic payment. (PAYPAMS).

    All school meals continue to be free, but for those scholars who are purchasing A La Carte snacks, only cash is being taken as payment.

    If you have loaded funds onto your student's PAYPAMS Account and you would like to request a refund, please contact our
    Account Tech, Rocio De Alba by phone at (760) 966-4004 or by email at rocio.delba@oside.us.


    PayPAMS provides a convenient and safe place to make school meals and fee payments. Although school meals are free for the 2021-2022 school year, students will have the option to purchase additional snacks at school using funds in their PAYPAMS. Please visit our webpage Healthy Snack Sales and Classroom Parties for more information.
