Emergency Notifications and School Closure

parentsquare logo


St. Mary’s School for the Deaf uses ParentSquare as our school-to-home communications platform.  It is an easy-to-use communication tool that combines multiple communication modalities into one interface for our families and staff.  Our hope is that ParentSquare will deepen family engagement and help us to sharpen our communication methods.

Here’s what you can do with ParentSquare:

  • Receive messages from our school via email, text message, phone call, or mobile app notification
  • Two-way texting with translation for our non-english speaking families
  • Communicate in your preferred language
  • Securely send a message to our school

We recommend activating your account or registering for more advanced ParentSquare features.  When users register their account, they will see all communications in one organized feed. Registering an account will also allow you to download/login via the app, and receive app notifications.
