The Liberty High School cafeteria is utilizing the LINQ Connect system for meal money deposits and free and reduced meal applications. This is a different system than the one used at all other LCISD campuses.
How do I deposit money into my child's meal account?
If your child attends Liberty High School, visit linqconnect.com and click "Register" (upper right corner) to create an account. Once your account is created, login using the email and password you have just set. After you've logged in, you will see an option to "Add Child" on the right side of the screen. Add your child and follow the prompts to deposit money.
You (or your child) can also take a check or cash to any LCISD cafeteria or the LCISD Administrative Offices to be deposited in your child's account.
I have a child at Liberty High School and a child on another LCISD campus. How do I deposit money in multiple children's lunch accounts?
In this case, you would have to deposit money via different platforms for your different children. Liberty student meal accounts are housed in LINQ Connect only (linqconnect.com). All other LCISD student meal accounts are housed in Lunch Money Now only (https://www.lunchmoneynow.com/lmnlcp/splash.php).
My child had money left in his/her meal account at the end of the 2022-23 school year. What happened to that money?
All money left in a child's meal account at the end of the school year automatically "rolls" into their account for the next school year. In the case of Liberty students, the district has already moved these balances from students' former Lunch Money Now accounts into their current LINQ Connect counts. No further action is required from parents.
How do I apply for free or reduced meals if I ONLY have a child (or children) enrolled at Liberty High School?
If Liberty High School is the ONLY LCISD campus where you have children enrolled, you can complete a free and reduced-price meal application online at linqconnect.com (click "Start Meal Application" in the menu on the right side of the screen).
How do I apply for free or reduced-price meals if I have a child (or children) enrolled at Liberty High School AND a child (or children) enrolled on another LCISD campus?
If you have a child (or children) enrolled at Liberty High School AND a child (or children) enrolled on another LCISD campus, you will have to complete a paper application for free and reduced-price meals. Paper applications are available from any LCISD campus office, or the LCISD Administrative Offices. Completed paper applications can be returned to any LCISD campus office, or the LCISD Administrative Offices.
Where can I find breakfast and lunch menus?
Breakfast and lunch menus for all LCISD campuses (including Liberty High School) are available at linqconnect.com and https://www.lunchmoneynow.com/lmnlcp/splash.php.
Please know, we understand that this is a transition and may take parents some time to set up. As always, the LCISD Food Services Department will ensure all students are fed each day, no matter what!
School meal prices for the 2023-24 school year are:
Student Breakfast (all grades) $2.00
Student Lunch (grades pk-5) $3.00
Student Lunch (grades 6-12)
There is a possibility that your child may qualify for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). To find out if the children in your household are eligible for free or reduced-price meals, simply complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals online or via paper form.
Here is some important information about applying for free and reduced-price meals:
Any family can apply. There is no penalty for families who apply and do not qualify.
Families who have not qualified in the past may qualify this year, as income eligibility qualifications have been adjusted.
The application and free or reduced-price meal status are completely confidential. Teachers, administrators, and fellow students do not have access to this information and will have no way of knowing throughout the school year which children qualify for free and reduced-price meals.
Children who qualify for free or reduced-price meals have the same food options as children who do not qualify. There are no “special lunch lines” or different menu items for qualifying students.
Qualifying for free and reduced-price meals may provide access to many additional benefits, including:
Pandemic EBT benefits
Reduced registration fees for AP, SAT, and/or ACT tests
Free or discounted participation fees for activities
Discounted rates associated with college applications
Discounted rates on internet services
To complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals online:
If you have an existing account, select “Login”; if you do not have an existing account, select “Guest Login”
Follow the prompts to complete the application process. (The application will ask for your child’s student ID number, but if you do not know your child’s student ID number, you will be able to look it up using your child’s full name and date of birth.)
If you prefer to complete a paper Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals:
Paper applications are available at any LCISD campus office, the district’s main office, and during fall open houses.
