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.

Oakland Mills Middle School is part of the Maryland Meals for Achievement (MMFA) program where students receive free breakfast. Lunch is $3.30 per meal.
Meal payments may be made via credit card using the LINQ Connect portal. On-site payments and prepayments may be made using cash or check.

If a child has a fever, he/she needs to be fever free for 24 hours, with no medication, before returning to school.
On the day your child returns to school, an explanatory note should be submitted to the school indicating the date(s) and reason for the absence. A doctor's certificate is required in cases of long-term absence (more than three days). A note should also be submitted upon return, to request exclusion from activities (i.e., physical education). Should you need more information or assistance please contact our nurse Judith Bruce email@example.com or our health assistant Janet Eldridge firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
The Maryland Children’s Health Insurance Program (MCHIP) is available for families, pregnant women, and children in need of medical insurance. Applications are available through the school health assistant or by contacting the Howard County Health Department at 410-313-7500.
