The Fort Plain Central School District will begin using a new app called ParentSquare for parent notification calls and messages, to replace the district’s current emergency notification and information sharing system.
ParentSquare is a parent engagement tool that helps teachers and staff easily communicate and collaborate with parents. In the past, we have used Remind and a variety of other tools to communicate with school families.
ParentSquare will help align communications procedures from the district level to the classroom. It will give our families a single platform to receive information in their preferred method. We are excited to provide our families with a communications tool that has more robust engagement features, an app for mobile users, language translations, and more.
Families will receive a welcome text and email message from ParentSquare on Monday, Sept. 28. The message will direct users to download the FREE ParentSquare App and create an account. Once enrolled, your children will automatically be linked to your account, and you will be able to receive school communications that pertain to your children.
If you do not receive a ParentSquare welcome message by Tuesday, Sept. 29, please notify the main office at your child’s school:
Harry Hoag Elementary School 518-993-4000, ext. 3059
Fort Plain Jr./Sr. High School 518-993-4000, ext. 2124
During the 2020-2021 school year, ParentSquare will be used for communications from administrators, principals and teachers. We believe you will find ParentSquare to be an effective, user-friendly communication tool. Please stay tuned for those offerings as we begin using this service throughout the school district.
