ParentSquare is the new unified school-to-home communications application that has already been implemented at South Colonie. In early July, parents/guardians received a message at the email address the district has on file asking them to join ParentSquare and activate their accounts.
Activating your account gives you the ability to familiarize yourself with ParentSquare and consider your communications preferences. We also encourage you to make the most of ParentSquare by downloading the ParentSquare App for mobile devices:
The benefit of ParentSquare is that it puts many of the varied communications that come from school (messages from teachers and notices from schools and the district) in one place. The app provides a place where you can see messages that are posted, receive push notifications, view the district calendar, and even do things like sign-up for parent-teacher conferences or to volunteer at school.

We look forward to staying connected with you this school year!
