We will now be using ParentSquare for district and school communication, primarily with email, text and app notifications. As far as text notifications for emergency alerts, nothing will change other than the phone number it's coming from. This will still be used for snow days, cancellations, and emergencies. 

We will send email invites to the app/site July 14 or 15. We will send a test "emergency" alert July 19.

The most important thing to do is to make sure that your cell and email information is up-to-date in PowerSchool. 

If you haven't received text or email notification to your preferred phone or email address click here to fill out this form or call the school buildings.

Webinars are scheduled to help get you acquainted. RSVP here.


Here’s what you can do with ParentSquare:

  • Receive messages from the school via email, text or app notification

  • Choose to receive information as it comes or all at once at 6pm daily
