Introducing ParentSquare: Our New Communication Tool

Community  /  Important School Information  /  Parents

David Douglas families,

We are excited to announce that we have transitioned to a new communication platform. We now are using ParentSquare for District and school level communications. ParentSquare is designed to keep parents informed and make communicating easy. It provides a safe method for principals, teachers, staff, and parents/guardians to communicate and share information through email, text and phone messages.

We encourage everyone to activate their ParentSquare account to take full advantage of this tool. Even without an account, all families will receive messages to their email address and phone number. But an activated account makes communication even easier and gives parents the ability to customize how they receive messages. We also encourage users to download the free ParentSquare app, available in the Apple Store and Google Play

The District emailed families a few times over the summer, inviting them to activate their account. For those that have not activated their account yet, we will continue to send the invitation throughout the fall. If you don’t receive a ParentSquare invitation email, please check your spam folder. Then contact your school to make sure the email address they have on file is accurate. It’s extremely important that your child’s school has your current email address and phone number on file to ensure you receive classroom, school and district information.

Once you’ve activated your account, visit this Parent Resource page to get started using ParentSquare.
