New Messaging System-ParentSquare

Posted by Brandi Graham on 9/26/2022

Dear Edwards-Knox Central School District Families,

 

We are excited to announce that the Edwards-Knox Central School District has adopted a new form of school-to-home communication called ParentSquare. This unified communications platform is designed to keep parents and guardians informed and encourage greater engagement and connection between home and school. It provides a safe way for school administrators, teachers, staff, and parents to: 

  • Receive important alerts,

  • Send and receive school and class information,

  • Share pictures and files,

  • View Calendar items,

  • Sign up to volunteer, and

  • Schedule parent-teacher conferences 

District and school, grade level, and classroom information will now be sent to your computer or phone via email and/or text. For even more convenience, you can download the ParentSquare app for iOS and Android devices using the links below or search for Parent Square in your app store.

App for iOS (Apple)

The ParentSquare platform will replace our previous OneCallNow system which was used to send informational and emergency alerts (e.g. snow days, emergency closures, safety drills) to staff and parents. All emergency notifications and teacher/school posts will be sent to the email and cell phone contact information that is currently on file with Edwards-Knox Central School District in SchoolTool. It is critically important that we have your most up to date contact information. If you need to update your phone numbers or email addresses, please contact your child’s school secretary. 

  • Grades PK-6, 315-562-8130, ext. 25533

  • Grades 7-12, 315-562-8131  ext. 25520 

On September 30th, families will receive a test text, phone call, and email from Edwards-Knox Central School District via ParentSquare. If you do not receive this, please contact your child’s grade level school secretary and verify your contact information.

Sincerely,

Erin E. Woods
