Changes to Nutrition Services Point-of-Sale Platform

Starting December 26, 2023, Nutrition Services will be transitioning from LINQ Connect to SchoolCafe as the new point-of-sale system for the remainder of the 2023–2024 school year; however, menus will continue to be available on LINQ Connect. While you will be able to create an account and link it to your student, some information will not transfer to the new system (like account balances) until the start of the new semester. 

Here are a few essential points to note about the point-of-sale platform transition:

  • Transfer of Student Files: Your student's file will be transferred from LINQ Connect to SchoolCafe on December 26, 2023. This transfer includes account balances, ensuring a seamless transition.
  • Student Balances: Rest assured, all student balances will be transferred to SchoolCafe. You will retain your existing balance without any loss or disruption.
  • Action Required: After December 26, you will need to create an account with SchoolCafe. You will need your student ID for this step. If you do not know your student ID, it can be found in Infinite Campus. Verify your account balance and review and confirm your account preferences. If you do not set up an account with SchoolCafe, you will not be able to add money to your child’s account or get notifications. Check out a video walkthrough on how to add money to your child’s account and how to apply for free and reduced price meal benefits.
  • Menu Platform: While the point-of-sale system is changing to SchoolCafe, our menu platform will continue to be available through LINQ Connect for the remainder of this school year. For now, families will need to use both apps.
