What is ParentSquare?
ParentSquare is an easy-to-use communication tool that combines multiple communication streams into one convenient interface for families and staff. This year, the Snoqualmie Valley School District will be transitioning from our current notification system, School Messenger, to a much more robust communication platform, ParentSquare.  All families will receive an invite by the district to engage  with ParentSquare. From there, they'll be able to set their preferred communication mode, interact with teachers and staff, and have a one-stop shop for all district and school communication. 

Once fully implemented, ParentSquare features include:

  • Mass notifications and urgent alerts with two-way communication

  • Consolidated, newsfeed-style contacts from multiple sources when and how they’re wanted

  • Mobile application for staff and parents (iOS and Android)

  • Attendance notifications

  • Teacher and classroom communication

  • Direct messaging with two-way translation

  • Social (Facebook and Twitter) and website share 

  • Appointment sign-ups (parent-teacher conferences, technology pick-ups) 

  • Calendar and RSVP

  • Volunteering and classroom supply sign-ups

  • And much more!

ParentSquare and Schoology
Schoology will continue as the primary tool for information about classroom instruction like grades, assignments, and instructional resources. ParentSquare will now be the direct way we communicate non-instructional information from the classroom, school, and district.

How does ParentSquare work?
ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent/guardian, using the primary email address and phone number you gave your school office (also the email used by Family Access). If you do not remember the email address, don't hesitate to contact your school office, and they can provide it. We encourage parents to access their accounts to download the mobile app and update their preferences for when and how they want to be notified.

How is my communication managed?
You can receive communication from the district, school, and classroom by email, text, mobile app, or the ParentSquare website. To reduce and streamline the amount of messaging you get each day, we have set the ParentSquare default to the digest option, which will collect all of your student's communication from the district, school, and classroom into one message a day. We have also turned on text as a feature for all parents. You can change your notification preferences, including your preferred language of communication, on your ParentSquare account page.
