ParentSquare Information for Families

ParentSquare Logo

ParentSquare is the district’s new two-way communications platform that provides instant translations in 100+ languages. It has been launched in all WPS schools over the past few months.

ParentSquare is used for items such as newsletters, snow day notifications, group chats, calendars, report cards, volunteer sign-ups and more. ParentSquare is now used for districtwide newsletters and announcements, and posting student report cards.

While it is not required, we highly suggest all parents/caregivers: 1) download the ParentSquare app from the Google Play Store or Apple Store, and 2) register your ParentSquare account with the email address that is connected to your student through the WooEdu Parent Portal. Students in grades 9-12 can also download the ParentSquare app and connect with their WPS email address.

You Choose How Often You Receive Notifications

Once you have registered your account, you can adjust your notification settings to determine which communication methods you prefer – email, text, or mobile app – and how often you would like to receive these notifications

You have three options:

  • Instant: Receive all messages instantly

  • Digest: Receive all messages together in one daily communication around 6:00 PM*

  • Off: No notifications are sent.* You can check the app for notifications at your leisure.

*Regardless of your notification settings, you will continue to receive emergency notifications instantly. This will include snow cancellation messages.
