About Prepaid Lunch Program and K.O.A. for 2019-2020

The Kinkaid School is a cash free campus. Students make purchases in the school store and cafeteria using their student ID (Falcon cards) and the Kinkaid on Account (KOA) service. At the end of each month, all store and cafeteria charges are posted in summary to the student’s billing account. Parents, Faculty & Staff can view details of all store and cafeteria transactions after logging into the Kinkaid on Account (K.O.A.) website in the Parent Portal.

Please note that the KOA system is currently being updated. The link will be available soon.

Dates for cafeteria quarters for the 2019/20 school year are:

  • Quarter 1 - Aug 21 through Oct 25
  • Quarter 2 - Oct 28 through Jan 17
  • Quarter 3 - Jan 21 through Mar 31
  • Quarter 4 - Apr 1 through May 22
