ParentSquare Communications Platform

Over the past decade the Olympia School District has used SchoolMessenger ‘Communicate’ to send mass notifications (robocalls, emails and texts) to our families and staff at both the district and school level. This year we are moving to a new streamlined platform called ParentSquare.


This fall families received an emailed invitation to activate their ParentSquare account for the 2023-24 school year. This transition did not impact any of our district/school websites or the Schoology platform. ParentSquare replaced the Remind direct messaging platform used in the past by some individual school staff and families.


OSD families will continue to receive district and school communications via robocall, email and text regardless of whether or not you registered for ParentSquare. The benefit to registering in ParentSquare is the access you will have to historical communications, the ability to edit and update your communication preferences and family contact information, and access to additional communication features as they are announced.


The ParentSquare app has a familiar design, similar to that of a social media feed. It also offers families the option of sending and receiving information in their preferred languages.


Should you have any questions regarding ParentSquare, please contact the Communications and Community Relations department at (360) 596-6103, or you can email us. We will be your contact for questions about ParentSquare.


Additional ParentSquare Resources




The Olympia School District uses ParentSquare for school communication, primarily with email, text and app notifications. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent, using their preferred email address and phone number. We encourage our parents to access their accounts so they can

download the mobile app and update their preferences on when and how they are notified.



Here’s what you can do with ParentSquare:


  • Receive messages from the school via email, text or app notification

  • Choose to receive information as it comes or all at once at 6 p.m. daily

  • Communicate in your preferred language





Opt Out

We promise to only send you information closely related to school. You can opt-out at any time. See this document for more information about opting out of our communications.
