Getting started with ParentSquare

  • A ParentSquare account is automatically generated for each parent/guardian using the primary email address and phone number you provided to your school office (also the email used by Skyward/Family Access). To ensure you receive district, school, and classroom communication, it is important your contact information is up-to-date with your school. We recommend reviewing your contact information annually in Skyward/Family Access and if updates are needed, please let your school office know.

    Email invitations to activate your ParentSquare account are sent out before each school year for those new to the Snohomish School District or after the student is registered if starting school in the middle of the year. While it is highly recommended that you activate your ParentSquare account, you will still receive communication from the district and school without doing so. The default for ParentSquare message delivery is set to a daily digest, which will deliver all the communication from the district, school, and classroom for all of your students into one message that is sent daily at 6 p.m. (emergency communication, attendance notices, and meal balance notifications are sent separately).

    Activating your ParentSquare account allows you to:

    • Customize your notification settings (receive messages instantly or a daily digest at 6 p.m.). 
    • Set your preferred communication method (email, text message, phone call, app notification)
    • Utilize the mobile app so that all school and district messages can be found in one convenient location
    • Set your preferred language for sending and receiving communication
    • Reply to messages sent from your child's school or classroom

    How to activate your account:
    After your child is enrolled in the Snohomish School District, you can activate your ParentSquare account in one of three ways:

    1. Use the email or text message that is automatically sent to you by the district; or
    2. Visit the ParentSquare website and use the email account or phone number you have on record with your school to activate a new account; or
    3. Download the ParentSquare app on your iOS or Android phone. The email and/or cell phone number you enter should match what is in your school's information system. Note: If your email or phone number is not recognized by ParentSquare, you can 'Request Access' or call your school office and ask them to update your contact information.

    Verifying your account:
    Contacts must be verified to ensure that we are sending communication to the right person. Registered users will be prompted to verify their contact information at login. If you do not verify at sign in, you can verify later. Follow the directions to verify your account or follow the prompts when you login to your account.
