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.

As though we are all retired; &, have time to deal with the inundation of the seemingly non stop communications; regardless if they have anything to do with us; or, our particular student. In my opinion there are too many platforms. I would rather that an existing platform be expanded, than to continue creating new ones. For this, I take a double hit; both via email & the parent square app: For me, personally, it's over kill. My 2 cents worth, which, although honest, will be found offensive.

It's not letting me login and I'm unable to log back in. I'm getting emails of messages from my kid's school but I'm not able to even log back in on the app. Not sure what kind of glitch is happening on the app. Other than that I love this app! Very efficient and easy to use. I have all three of my kids teachers on this app, very convenient to have them all in one.

I am really enjoying this platform! I like that all the info I need is in one place, and I don't need to look through emails to find a specific website because they are all in one location on this app. ***One improvement I'd like to see is on the calendar tab. It would be to be able to CHOOSE to see all my childrens schedules from their different schools at the same time. That would be AMAZING and greatly appreciated!!! 😁
