Updated to Parent Online Site has changed the name to SCHOOL CAFE Student Lunch Account Management Tool. Starting August 1st, 2016, you can log on to https://www.schoolcafe.com. Returning students and parents can use their login and password from Parent Online to login to School Café.
PrimeroEdge team constantly strives to create products and solutions that go
above and beyond expectations. With this in mind we recently set out to
overhaul ParentOnline and provide a more comprehensive experience and tool set for both school nutrition professionals and the
families they serve. We’re calling this new experience “SchoolCafé.”
We understand that there is seldom a “perfect time” for major
change. Servicing State agencies, districts and parents across the country can
add unique challenges relating to timing. Our Product Management and
Development teams have to make the best decisions for our overall customer
base, product quality, and strategic vision – those decisions sometimes result
in timetables that may seem odd to some. With the new school year fast
approaching, you likely have questions about the transition from ParentOnline
When will SchoolCafé be available?
The official launch date of SchoolCafé website and app is 8/1/2016. The website address for SchoolCafé will be www.schoolcafe.com. Until that time, ParentOnline will remain as-is for parents to use.
What about the existing ParentOnline website and app?
After 8/1 we will update the www.parentonline.net website to send users to the new SchoolCafé website. This will redirect users who instinctively may still go to ParentOnline. For app users they receive a message when opening the existing ParentOnline about the switch and we'll link them to the new SchoolCafé app to download.
What about existing ParentOnline Accounts?
All previously registered user accounts will remain unchanged. Parents will still use the same login credentials (username and password). There is no need for parents to create new accounts or take any extra steps. Also, we will be sending a message to parents to let them know that the name and look of the website will be changing (including the name that appears on their bank statements for payments).
What about existing features?
They're still there! We've maintained the same features for current customers who are using payments and cafeteria account management.
What's so special about SchoolCafé?
SchoolCafé was designed with you (and parents, AND students!) in mind. We've done a lot of work and we know you'll be as excited about all of the cool new stuff designed to increase parent and student engagement, and ultimately meal participation.
A Fresh New Look
- We've improved our design and user experience. From the colors, to the fonts, to the support for every device and browser – we’ve left no stone unturned. Both the website and phone app have definitely had a facelift!
- Registration: We now allow students to create their own accounts. This unique feature will enable students to view and interact with school menus. They will be able to rate, favorite, and share menu items on social media.
- Student Account Connect: Students can connect to their cafeteria account in order to view their current balance and transaction account history.
- Digital IDs: Students who have connected their account will have access to their digital ID card that contains a barcode that can be used in the cafeteria (where ID scanners are available).
