As you may know, we formally transitioned from School Messenger to our new unified communications platform, Parent Square. This will be the platform we use for communicating with you this school year. Parent Square provides a safe way for the district, schools and school-based organizations to send and receive school and district information. The platform is visually-appealing and offers several interactive features. Additionally, there are other tools such as calendar items, polls and RSVPs for events. We are particularly excited about the integration of Parent Square with our website making it easy to share information through our website (or social media) from Parent Square. The following provides directions for parents on getting started with Parent Square and, for those that want additional information/help, information about an upcoming Webinar.
Please review the directions below and as well as links to support you in setting up your account to receive communications from the district or your child(ren)’s school(s).
Getting Started with Parent Square:
Access Parent Square login

You will be receiving an email asking you to register for Parent Square in the coming days, if you haven’t already done so. Be on the lookout for this email.
IMPORTANT: You may need to re-register for an account to Parent Square as we reset the data to reflect the new school year. We apologize for the inconvenience.
