From our Cafeteria Manager, Mrs. Holderman:
If you had Free or Reduced Lunch last year in any Howard County Public School, it carries over to this year. That status expires on October 18. Please make sure you fill out a new form and turn it in. Paper applications were given out in the student folders at the start of school. Paper applications could take up to 2 weeks to process. You can also apply online at www.myschoolapps.com, which takes less time to process.
You can add money to your students' account to be used for Breakfast, Lunch and A La Carte items. Pay online at www.myschoolbucks.com. You will have to set up an account. We take cash and checks at the register. Checks must be $25 or more. Checks should be made out to “HCPSS FNS”. Also include your student’s name on the check and a telephone number.
