    All cafeterias in Garrett County Public Schools have computerized Point of Sale. Students enter their Personal Identification numbers (PIN) to pay for purchases and proceed to the cashier. Students pay for purchases using cash or money placed "On Account." If a student cannot remember their PIN, the cafeteria staff will be able to give it to them. Please help your child learn this number and teach them that they should keep it private, as it is access to their account.

    Students who correctly enter their number when purchasing their meal move more quickly through the service line.

    Parents can send cash or checks with their student(s) for deposit. However, we strongly encourage parents to monitor, view, and fund students' accounts by logging on to the LINQ Connect Portal. We encourage parents to monitor their child’s cafeteria activity and account balances throughout the year. Using this tool to do so makes it easier than ever.

    Depositing funds on account will allow students to purchase breakfast, lunch, or any a la carte item.

    Benefits of placing money "On Account:"

    • Safe - the PIN ensures only one student can access the account
    • Convenient - money cannot be lost or forgotten in the morning rush
    • Fast - cafeteria lines move more quickly, so there's plenty of time to eat
    • Monitored - see the secure account balance anytime on the LINQ ConnectPortal
    • Peace of Mind - the auto replenish feature on the LINQ Connect website ensures money for meals is always there for the student
