If you haven't already done so, please transition to our all-in-one communication platform, ParentSquare.
THANK YOU, TIGER FAMILIES!
We have consistently heard from parents and guardians in our district that they love to be informed about what’s going on in our schools. But keeping up with that communication can be overwhelming. For a parent of one student, they need to keep abreast of Facebook, texts, emails, Class Dojo or Remind, and the website. If their kid is in sports, that usually adds in a few more streams of information. If they have multiple kids across different schools, it only gets worse.
We know that there is a need to simplify this process and condense the streams of information coming in to parents and guardians, and that is why we are implementing a new service called ParentSquare. ParentSquare will take the place of multiple ways of communicating to parents, and put them all into one place, instead of needing to remember which stream a piece of information came from.
ParentSquare provides a safe way for district administrators, school principals, teachers, staff, coaches, and parents to:
Send and receive school and class information
Share pictures and files
See calendar items
Sign up to volunteer
and much more . . . all in one centralized place!
Parents—Getting Started Video is here: https://parentsquare.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/203414049-For-Parents-Getting-Started-
All district, school, grade level, and classroom information will now be sent to your computer or phone via email and/or text. For even more convenience, download the ParentSquare app (available for free for iOS and Android devices). Once you’ve logged in, you can set your preferences for how you’re notified in a variety of ways, to best suit your needs. The experience on the web-based and app experience is very similar, so how you access it is up to you.
Have questions? You can email Jason Strzalkowski, email@example.com

We look forward to helping you be more connected to Van Buren Public Schools!
