Total Access FAQ

How do I access Total Access?
You will need a username and password to access Total Access. You may get these by emailing Nutrition Services . Please provide first and last name, and grade of your student(s).

I forgot my username and/or password.
If you previously received your username and password, and have forgotten or misplaced it, simply enter the last known email address on the account and the system will email it to you.

I got a new email address.
Keep your email address up-to-date so you continue to receive low account balance reminders. You may update your student’s account by logging into Total Access using your username and password. You can make edits there first; then update it in PowerSchool. Once PowerSchool is updated, it’s the only place you need to keep it updated.

How do I know when the account is low on funds?
You will receive an email low balance warning approximately 3 days before your account will reach zero, based on your family’s purchase history. This is an approximation. The district sets low balance warnings at a level which is three times the price of one meal per child. Negative balances are not allowed at the high school and all students must pay for a la carte purchases.

How do I add money to my child’s account?

  • Online credits may be entered any time by clicking here. You may login by entering the username and password used for Linn-Mar’s electronic registration. This is NOT the same username and password used for Total Access.
  • Credit and debit cards are acceptable. Deposits must be completed by 9:00 AM in order for funds to be available for same-day purchases. There is no fee for this service.
  • Cash or checks may be sent to school daily and taken to the main office in elementary and middle school buildings and given to the cashier at the high school.
