Arco Iris is very excited to be adopting a new and improved platform for communication. Beginning next week we’ll be transitioning to a product called ParentSquare to keep families better informed. ParentSquare will replace SchoolMessenger and any other texting/messaging apps that individual teachers may be using. It will not replace Seesaw or Google Classroom.
ParentSquare provides a safe way for administrators, teachers, staff and parents to:
● Send and receive school and class information in your preferred language
● Share pictures and files
● See calendar items
● Sign up for conferences
● And much more… all in one place!ParentSquare Parent Videos
School, grade level and classroom information will be sent to your computer and/or phone via email and/or text. Or you can download the free iOS or Android app.
ParentSquare has a familiar design, similar to a social media feed. Families will only receive notifications that are relevant to their students. In addition to school-wide messaging, teachers and staff will have access to two-way messaging with real-time translation. Families will be able to receive and send information in their chosen languages.
You don’t need to take any action to receive emails, texts or phone calls prior to launch. Our student information system will sync contact information directly with ParentSquare. If you’d prefer to use the app, simply download it from the app store and follow the prompts.
