ParentSquare is the official channel of communication coming from the school. Through ParentSquare, users may select to receive communications through email, text, or mobile app. It is not necessary to enroll in the system to receive updates.

In cases of emergency or extremely time-sensitive information, the school will send an urgent alert through ParentSquare. During annual registration, parents/guardians indicate their preferred method of contact for these messages: phone call, text message, email, or a combination of the three.

For more information, or to receive an updated invitation, please contact Caroline Hutton
