ParentSquare allows the district, schools and teachers to send messages in a variety of ways. One method is a post that would only go to your school’s “feed” in the ParentSquare app or web portal.
Your school or teacher also could choose to send that post to parents/guardians in the form of a text or email. Staff can choose to send a private message to one or more users.
For example, a school nurse might text you to ask a question about administering your student’s medication.
The third method is a “smart alert” sent at the district and school level — things like the district newsletter, messages from the superintendent and messages about back-to-school nights. They can be sent via text, email or phone call.
The final category is an “urgent smart alert.” These messages will be sent via text, email and phone call and include inclement weather notifications and health and safety issues.
