Families who would like to pay student activity fees online, must create a LINQ Connect account to do so. 
To begin using LINQ Connect , please follow these steps. 

Step One: 
Visit and click "Register" to begin the process of making a new account. Google Chrome is the browser LINQ Connect recommends.

You will be asked to provide your name and email address and select a password. You will also have the opportunity to select your primary language from the following options: Armenian, Burmese, Chinese, English, French, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese. You will be asked to select a timezone as well. West Shore is located in the Eastern Time (US & Canada).

Step Four: 
Review your child’s meal history and if interested, you can also use LINQ Connect to add funds to their account or submit a Free and Reduced Meals application. If you use the LINQ Connect  website to apply for no cost or low cost meals, you do not need to complete the paper application. 

Depositing Money Into Meal Accounts

Once you have added your child to your LINQ Connect account, you can add money by clicking the Add Money to Account button on the dashboard or by clicking the Meal Accounts button on the student card. You can choose to either Add to Balance or set up a New Recurring Payment with Auto Pay.

If you select Add to Balance, the funds will be immediately available on your student’s account upon completion of the transaction.

If you select New Recurring Payment with Auto Pay, you will be setting up a future automatic payment for the specified amount, frequency, day, and starting date that you choose.
