Maypearl ISD Families:
We’re excited to inform you that our meal payments portal, TITAN Family Portal, has been upgraded to LINQ Connect.
Here are some exciting upgrades to enjoy:
- • A simple, fresh look to allow for better accessibility
- • An interactive dashboard to view all family members in one profile
- • A resource center to access help guides
- • Streamlined menus help you see more with fewer clicks
Visit linqconnect.com to log in to a browser or your app store and find “LINQ Connect” available on the Google Play and Apple stores now to download the new app and enjoy these new features. Just log in with your existing username and password.
If you don’t use our online meal payments portal, LINQ Connect allows you to set up one-time or recurring payments for your student’s meal. You can also view previous transactions, set spending limits, transfer funds between students, set low-balance notifications and more. It’s an easy way to manage meal payments without the hassle of sending cash.
Lunch applications will also be accessed via https://linqconnect.com as well.
Please take time to apply for free and reduced-price meals. Only one application per family is necessary. All families are encouraged to apply as additional benefits may also be available through filling out the application: P-EBT, School Funding, Academic Tests, Athletics, College Applications Fees, and Internet Access.
Apply online by visiting https://linqconnect.com
The attached application can also be printed, filled out and returned to the child's campus.
If you have additional questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Welcome to the Maypearl ISD Child Nutrition Homepage!
Thank you for choosing the Maypearl ISD Child Nutrition Team to provide nutritious meals for your child. We consider it an honor to serve our students every day and play an active role in their daily nutrition.
The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 put USDA school meals on a path to ending childhood hunger, reducing childhood obesity and improving the diets of children. Maypearl ISD has an agreement with the Texas Department of Agriculture to operate the Child Nutrition Programs as outlined in Federal and State regulations. Our goal is to provide nutrition for students, which fuels successful learning.
We encourage each parent to set up a LINQ account at https://linqconnect.com to be able to monitor / pay on your child’s account. It is a very easy process. This account lets you monitor your child’s meal activity. It will let you know if they eat, when they eat, how much they eat. If you send money with your child, you can check to be sure it made it to the cashier. You could set up alerts to let you know when the balance is getting low. There are a few payment options. You can make a one-time payment, a recurring monthly payment, or a donation for students in need who do not qualify for the meal program.
Starting the week of 7/17/23, we will begin distributing letters and applications electronically to the households of the children in the district about eligibility benefits. Families are encouraged to complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals, also available here, https://linqconnect.com, and return the completed form online or to any school office. Physical copies can of course, be made available at school offices and by request. The link to the application to download, then print and return or email is here: Meal Applications for Parents
The application will determine a child’s eligibility for free and reduced-price meals and may assist in the determination of eligibility for other state or federal benefits. Only one application needs to be completed per household. Schools will notify the household of the child’s eligibility. The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) administers school nutrition programs in Texas and offers an eligibility calculator at www.SquareMeals.org/ProgramEligibility.
Decisions regarding payment for school meals are made at the national-government level, not by the school nutrition team or TDA. The dedicated staff at Maypearl ISD are looking forward to serving healthy, balanced meals to students in the new school year. These meals, whether paid, free, or reduced-price, offer a good source of nutrition for children.
This information is confidential. All applications will be processed within a couple of days. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Michael Mitchell at (972) 435-1041.
