Coming Soon: ParentSquare - Rockwood's New Communications Platform

The ParentSquare logoWe are excited to share with you that the Rockwood School District is moving to a new platform for sharing all of the timely communication in our classrooms, buildings and district: ParentSquare.

Starting May 16 for Summer Academy families – and July 1 for the rest of the district – Rockwood will utilize ParentSquare to consolidate into one place the kinds of communications we used to share through platforms such as School Messenger, GroupMe, Remind and ClassDojo.

ParentSquare allows our district community to interact with our communications in a variety of ways between the app and the online portal. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent, using their preferred email address and phone number. Starting next school year, our students in grades 6-12 will also receive an invitation to join StudentSquare, a safe and secure communication and workflow center between educators and students.

On Monday, May 2, Rockwood guardians will receive an invitation email from ParentSquare asking them to activate their account. Please follow the instructions in the email in order to activate your account.

Please note: Guardians have the option to opt out of ParentSquare. Rockwood, our schools and our teachers will use ParentSquare to communicate with parents and guardians about a variety of important topics, including emergency messages as well as information closely related to the school’s educational mission.

Please visit the ParentSquare page on the Rockwood website for more information. You can learn more about StudentSquare by following this link.

***Do you prefer communication in a language other than English? Please visit this page for information about how to change the language settings in your accounts.*** 

We look forward to communicating with you through this exciting new unified platform for the Rockwood community!
