ParentSquare FAQ

If you are a parent or guardian of a student in Naugatuck Public Schools, you should have received an invitation email or text to join ParentSquare, and you’ll click a link to activate your account. You can also use your email or phone number to set up your account without the invitation.

Action:

  • Go to www.parentsquare.com/signin. You can also install your school’s ParentSquare app and follow the prompts to sign up.

  • Use Google single sign-on, your email, or your phone number to set up your account. Your email/phone number must match the contact details you gave the school for this to work.

  • If your contact details aren’t recognized, contact your school secretary to get them added. After they update your information in our student information system, the new contact details will appear in ParentSquare after the next daily sync. Then you will be able to create an account.

Please check your spam to see if any ParentSquare messages ended up there, and mark them as "Not Spam." Also add donotreply@parentsquare.com to your email contacts so your server recognizes our messages. If you still are not receiving emails, please contact support@parentsquare.com so they can assist you.

If you are missing a child/school, it may be because:

  • Your contact information is inconsistent across the schools' student information systems.

  • You have more than one ParentSquare account with different contact information

Action if one account:

  • Contact your child’s school to update your contact information. Ensure you have the same email and phone number on file for all children and all schools.

  • Your account will be corrected when we sync with the SIS (daily).

Action if multiple accounts:

  • Contact your child’s school to update your contact information in the SIS. Verify that each of your children have the same email address and mobile phone number listed for you.

  • Delete your ParentSquare user account(s) that does not have the correct email address (choose “Delete” when accessing your account in ParentSquare).

  • Your account will be corrected when we sync with the SIS. If the contact information has been made consistent across accounts in the SIS and the ParentSquare account(s) with the incorrect contact information have been deleted, then when we sync, your associations will be pulled into one ParentSquare account.

Please go to parentsquare.com and on the login page click "Forgot Password." Put in your email or phone number and you will be sent a link to reset your password. 

Is the phone number wrong? Do you want to change your primary email? Is your name misspelled? Do you see information for a student who’s not yours?

Action:

Contact the school office and ask for your contact information to be updated. Once they update your information in our student information system (PowerSchool), the changes will appear in ParentSquare after the next daily sync.

Contact your child's teacher privately by using our direct messaging tool. On the home page, click on "Messaging" in the left sidebar. From here, you can send a direct message to your child's teacher that only you and the teacher can see. You can also send messages to other staff members at the school, such as your child's coaches and club leaders.

Here is a link to our help page on direct messaging.

In order to change your sign up, you must delete your existing signup and sign up again for the correct slot. To delete your sign up, hover your mouse over your name and you will see a trash can appear to the right of your name. Click on the trash can and your sign up will be removed. Then, you can click on the "Sign Up" button that corresponds with the correct slot.

If your plans change and you would like to change your RSVP, click on "Sign Ups and RSVPs" under the participation tab in the left sidebar. On this page, find the event that you had previously sent an RSVP for and click the green button that says "Change my RSVP" on the right side. 

If your registration link expired, you will need a new one. Please contact your school's admin or send us an email to support@parentsquare.com and ask for a new link to be sent to you.

You may have some duplicate accounts. Please email support@parentsquare.com to combine your accounts and investigate further. To merge accounts, please provide the following information:
  1. Your name
  2. Preferred email and phone number to be used in ParentSquare
  3. Other emails or phone numbers possibly associated with your account

Once ParentSquare receives this information, they will merge your accounts and follow up when it is complete. 

Sometimes, non-parents get messages from a school using ParentSquare.

  • ParentSquare synchronizes with each school's internal student information database. It contains contact details provided by families (on forms, during enrollment, etc.)

  • Most likely a parent or staff member made a typo, and there is incorrect contact data for a parent or student that matches a real phone number or email!

  • Only the school or district is authorized to update contact details. This maintains security and protects student privacy.

Action: 

  1. Please contact the school that is sending you messages to have them remove your contact details from their SIS. 

  2. Reply STOP to a text message to block future messages.

To find answers on your own, login to ParentSquare, navigate to help articles for parents and students.

For all personal assistance or troubleshooting, reach out to your school.

Your school’s ParentSquare administrator will be able to contact our Support Team to escalate any bugs or complex issues that they are unable to resolve.
