A Centralized, School-to-Home Communications Application
Dear Niskayuna Families,
We are excited to announce that the Niskayuna Central School District will begin using a new school-to-home communication application called ParentSquare. This communications platform is designed to keep parents and family members informed and encourage greater engagement and connection with our schools. ParentSquare will replace School Messenger and will provide a centralized location for many types of communication between you and the school. The transition to ParentSquare will be smooth as we will be using the email address we have for your family when we get started.
In particular, ParentSquare provides a safe way for district administrators, school principals, teachers, staff, and parents to:
- Send and receive school and class information
- Share classroom pictures and files
- See calendar items
- Sign up to volunteer when applicable
- Schedule parent-teacher conferences
- And much more . . . all in one centralized place!
All parents and caregivers will receive a notification at the email address the district has on file in the coming week. The email will provide instructions on activating your account and downloading the application to your phone.
We look forward to sharing this new tool with our community!
