Amarillo ISD and our schools use ParentSquare for school communication primarily with email, text and app notifications. ParentSquare automatically syncs with Skyward to generate an account for each parent, using their preferred email address and phone number. We encourage parents to access their accounts so they can download the mobile app and update their preferences on when and how they are notified.
ParentSquare is a safe, secure, and modern approach to communication and collaboration between school and home.
ParentSquare (Opens in new window) is a unified communication platform that offers a whole host of tools which allows district, school administrators and teachers to more effectively communicate and engage with families and students.
All parents will receive basic closure/delay alerts, an end of day “digest” emailed to parents, and emergency notifications from the school via phone, email, text or app notification.
But only parents who activate/register their ParentSquare account will be able to have true 2-way communication for the following examples:
ParentSquare Overview for Parents - English
ParentSquare Overview for Parents - Spanish
On the app, enter your email or cell phone number. The email and/or cell phone number should match what is in the school's information system (Skyward).
On the web, click ‘Sign In’, then under ‘Register’ section, put your email or phone number and click '“Go”.
If the email or phone number is not recognized by ParentSquare, parents can follow directions to request access or call the school office and ask them to update the contact information.
Parents can update their language preference for their account. Once they have done this, ParentSquare will automatically translate any communication to them in their selected language. This translation will also occur when the parent sends a message to a staff member.
ParentSquare allows users to customize their notifications based on notification type and select their preferred delivery method for each school. The Instant setting will send all post notifications in real-time. The Digest setting sends direct messages, alerts, and time-sensitive posts instantly, but sends all non-time sensitive posts at the end of the day, reducing the number of notifications you receive daily. We recommend the Digest setting.
