    We’re excited to inform you that our meal payments portal, TITAN Family Portal, has been upgraded to LINQ Connect. There’s no need to change your username and password. All your information will be transferred to the new app. Here are some exciting upgrades to enjoy:

    • A simple, fresh look allows 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 your app store and find “LINQ Connect” available in the Google Play Store now and the Apple store available soon to download the new app and enjoy these new features. Just log in with your existing username and password. If you use a browser, visit LINQConnect.com to log in. 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 money.
