Northwest ISD and its campuses now use ParentSquare to communicate with families through email, text, phone call and app messages! With ParentSquare, families can choose what methods they want to receive communication through. By default, all families will receive digest – or recap – email and text messages at 6 p.m. daily, eliminating the clutter caused by dozens of messages.
All families are sent registration emails at the start of the school year, but they can also register without this message. Families can visit www.parentsquare.com/signin to register with either the email or phone number they have on file with their child’s school.
For families with Apple or Android smartphones, ParentSquare offers an app to view all communication from teachers, schools and the district. This app provides another avenue to review communication, though it is not required – families can still view communication by phone, email or on the ParentSquare website.
StudentSquare and Apps
At the secondary level, teachers and schools can communicate directly with students in StudentSquare, which is the student-branded version of ParentSquare. The features are nearly identical, providing educators with an easy way to reach students either via one-on-one communication or larger groups. As with ParentSquare, apps for StudentSquare are available on both Apple and Android smartphones.
