Meals: Breakfast and Lunch


Murray Hill 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.


Murray Hill 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. 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.

Student Services Vision

Through the provision of accessible, needs-based services to our students and families, we seek to strengthen the developmental assets needed for the healthy development of all young people. This vision comes from our core belief that in providing education, training and support to our students, families and staff, there is a direct and positive impact on the larger community.

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.
