Dear Families and Guardians of LPS Students,
We hope that this letter finds you doing well, albeit some very cold weather. We’re reaching out to provide some additional information about our new mass communication system, ParentSquare.
Overall, the implementation has gone well, and as can be expected with anything new, we have found that a number of questions have come up from users. Based on your feedback and questions, we’ve created a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) resource, which we will also post to our school and district website. We hope that this is useful as you begin to receive more communications from the district and schools through ParentSquare.
ParentSquare is intended to be a “one stop” communication hub, where the district, schools, and even eventually teachers, can communicate with families. The platform has an app, which is not required, however, with the frequency of cell phone users, we’ve received feedback over the years that an app would be helpful. If you have multiple children, the app will provide “feeds” for each school. You will still get communications if you don’t have the app, so no worries if you have not downloaded it.
Additionally, in order to participate in two way communications (this feature is not active yet), you would need to accept an invitation from ParentSquare. We have a number of families that may not have accepted the invitation yet, or may have just joined. Again, if you do not wish to take advantage of two way communications, you do not need to accept the invitation.
As always, please feel free to contact our District Database Team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions that are not answered in the FAQ document.
