ISM uses a full debit system. All concessionaires do not accept cash payments (except for Parents, Guests, and Outsourced Staff) during school hours.

If a student misplaces/loses their BEARCard ID, the student must secure a BEARCard slip from the ES/MS/HS Office to have access to food that day. If the card is lost, it must be replaced immediately through the Security Office.

New students will be provided a slip by the Security Office in lieu of the BEARCard while it is still in process. The slip will have a validity date.
