Meals: Lunch & Breakfast


Mount View Middle School's menu can be accessed through the LINQ Connect portal or mobile app. Families do not need a LINQ account to view menus that are available to the public.

Free and Reduced Meals (FARMs)

HCPSS participates in the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. Students from households meeting federal income guidelines can 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.


Breakfast and lunch are free for students who are enrolled in the Free and Reduced Meals program. For all other students, breakfast is $2.00 and 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. Parents/guardians will need to create an account to make online payments to their child’s meal account, monitor their child’s account, schedule automatic recurring payments, set up low balance alerts, submit a Free and Reduced Meals program application, and more.

7th Grade Immunization Requirements

Students entering 7th - 12th grade are required by the State of Maryland to have a Meningitis vaccine (MCV4) and a Tdap vaccine by the first day of school.  Please contact your child’s health care provider to obtain documentation of these vaccines or to schedule an appointment to receive the required above vaccines if still needed.  Failure to provide proof of updated immunizations by the first day of school could result in your child being excluded from school.   Immunization records can be scanned & emailed or a cell phone photo of record can be emailed directly to health room staff at email addresses below.  Please contact the school nurse directly if you have any further questions.  Thank you!

Medication Information

All prescribed and over-the-counter student medications needed during the school day require a medication order form to be completed, signed, and dated after July 1st by the student's health care provider.  Medications must be brought to the health room by a parent or guardian along with necessary completed forms. Additional information regarding student medication drop-off will be provided at the beginning of the school year.  If you have any questions, please contact the school nurse via email at  Medication and Health forms are available on the HCPSS website by clicking here.

Cell Phone Policy as it Relates to Sick Students

Students who become ill while at school must report to the health room to be evaluated. Please discuss with your student that he/she should not use his/her cell phone to call/text parents for pick-up during the school day.  Students who feel ill should go to the health room and parents or guardians will be contacted, as needed, once students are evaluated by the health room staff.   Thank you for your attention to this matter and for working with us to keep your child healthy and safe. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the MVMS Health Room at 410-313-5550 during school hours.

Accident and Medical Insurance

Accident Insurance

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.
