About this app

What is ParentSquare?

ParentSquare is a safe and secure platform for all school-to-home communication. The two-way group messaging, private conversations, district-wide alerts and notices, and simple user interface keeps everyone connected, creating a vibrant school community.

In today's ed-tech world, schools need a better communication system than relying on hard-to-track emails, lost flyers, missed robocalls, website updates that are never read, or piggybacking on SIS or LMS tools meant for student communication. ParentSquare brings the power of ed-tech revolution to the parents. It reverses the trend for disparate, one-way communication that keeps parents as 'spectators' to their child's education.

Understanding the need for a whole-school adoption, we strive to keep an easy to use interface for ParentSquare, much like the social tools you are used to in today's online digital world. ParentSquare caters to every parent, including those who rarely use technology.

The app used to work and was very useful. However, the recent updates have made the app constantly crash. I no longer get notifications, even after adjusting the settings on my phone. Every time you try to view any images, you get a pop-up saying that the app isn't responding. It's very annoying and isn't very useful anymore. I've missed messages and announcements from the school due to no longer getting notifications. Not cool... please fix it!!!

The recent update to this app, combined with the recent OS update on my phone, have affected how this app works. I cannot receive notifications anymore, no matter my settings. While trying to view pictures, the app constantly reports that it isn't responding, even when it's actually working. This continues even after I close the app. Nothing has changed after a few months and updates. This app stinks.

I have generally had a good experience with this app. Like others, I am suddenly having an issue getting push notifications from the app. This is particularly problematic because this is how we get COVID case notices and weather alerts. When I run the push notification diagnostic, it says I need to enable notifications. When I try to enable them, it will not let me (keeps turning them off). Note: I did find a workaround by enabling individual text and email notifications for the school.
