HCPSS students and their families can now view menus and nutrition and allergen information for meals served in all HCPSS schools through Nutrislice, a website and free smartphone app.
This upgrade to school menus benefits school health professionals and parents who can easily access nutritional information and make informed choices for their child’s nutrition.
The Howard County Public School System recently transitioned to a new online meal payment system, MySchoolBucks.com. This website allows families to easily manage student accounts and make payments online on personal computers and mobile devices.

Students entering 7th Grade for the 2016-2017 school year are required by the State of Maryland to have a meningitis vaccine and a Tdap vaccine by the first day of school, August 29, 2016. Please contact your child’s health care provider to obtain documentation of these vaccines (if they have previously been administered) or to schedule an appointment to receive the required vaccinations. Failure to provide proof of updated immunizations by the first day of school could result in your child being excluded from school. Physician offices may fax immunization documentation directly to the school at 410-313-5551. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Health Room at 410-313-5550. Thank you!
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.
