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.

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.

Recently, I have been having a strange issue with this app regarding notifications. Very suddenly, I am unable to receive notifications from the app, only via email and text. No matter how many times I go into settings and try to enable app notifications, it turns off by itself. I thought maybe something was wrong with my permissions settings on my phone, but everything is enabled there. I really want this issue resolved as I much prefer push notifications.

I've had a less than stellar experience w/ this app. Trying to navigate my way through it is like navigating the Bermuda Triangle! I can't send direct messages to the teachers & homework reminders aren't anywhere to be found. Having to double tap the back arrow EVERY time I want to see the previous page is incredibly annoying... & confusing for me. #lessthanstellarexperiene
