How do I pay for my child’s lunch?
The cafeteria operates on a computerized collection system. Money can be deposited into an account throughout the school year. We accept cash and checks but not credit cards for meal payment. Parents or students can bring payments to the cafeteria. Each student is assigned an account number, which is used throughout the entire school year. Students are asked to please bring pre-payments to cafeteria before 10:30 and put their number on the check.

How can I find out what the menu is?
Menus are printed in the newspaper, posted on line at the district’s web site or on the main page of the HMS website.

Does HMS serve breakfast?
Breakfast is served daily.

How do I apply for free or reduced breakfast or lunch?
Reduced-priced and free meals are available for students whose families qualify, based upon family income and family size. Forms are available at HMS in the main office or the cafeteria. Completed forms should be returned to the cafeteria cashier. For additional information, contact Pam Vaughn at Student Nutritional Services at 843-398-2315.

Can my child bring his lunch?
Children may choose to bring a lunch. It is recommended that ice packs be used to keep the lunch cool. For safety reasons, 2 microwaves are available for students. Please send nutritionally balanced lunches.
