Meals: Breakfast and Lunch


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

Free and Reduced Meals (FARMs)

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.


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.

Our Health Room Needs Your Help! Cell Phone Policy as it relates to Sick Students

Students who become ill while at school must come 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 report directly to the health room and parents will be contacted, as needed, once students are seen by our nurse.  

If your child calls/texts you during the school day, please tell him/her to go to the health room and the staff will contact you directly. Thank you so much for your attention to this matter and for working with us to keep your child healthy and safe.

If you have any questions, please contact Megan Seaman, RN (Cluster Nurse) at 410-313-5610.

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.
