HCPSS participates in the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. Students from households that meet federal income guidelines are eligible to receive free or reduced-price meals. Parents/guardians must submit a new application every school year to maintain their student's eligibility. To apply, go to the HCPSS FARMs webpage.
HCPSS students and families can view menus and nutrition and allergen information for meals served in all HCPSS schools through the Nutrislice website and free smartphone app. Download the Nutrislice mobile app for iOS or Android.
Information on the HCPSS wellness policy and commitment to quality is available online.
Breakfast is free for all students attending Title I schools.
Lunch is free for students who qualify for free and reduced meals. Lunch costs $2.80 for all other students.
HCPSS uses MySchoolBucks.com, an online meal payment system. This system allows families to easily manage student accounts and make payments online on personal computers and mobile devices.

When your child returns to school, send in a note to excuse your child's absence. Please make sure it is signed and dated.
Records are kept confidential and follow your child throughout their attendance in Howard County Schools.
KEEP THE SCHOOL UP TO DATE IF PHONE NUMBERS CHANGE. If there were to be an emergency and we had to notify you to pick your child up in 15 minutes– would you be able to do that?

Bollman Bridge School-Based Wellness Center is a partnership between Howard County Health Department and Howard County Public School System. School Wellness Centers do not replace students' regular health care providers in the community. By providing some health care at school we can help parents stay at work and help students stay at school, or more quickly return to school. There is no co-pay or fee for visits at the Wellness Center. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-490-1655 for more information.
Our Nurse Practitioner can provide the following services:
• Assessment, diagnosis and treatment of acute illness and injuries, including labs and prescriptions if needed

The school system does not carry medical insurance for accidents that occur at school, including non-sport related injuries, such as trips and falls, physical education injuries, and recess/playground injuries. Thus, parents are encouraged to enroll students in the accident insurance program offered through HCPSS.
