ParentSquare Tip of the Week
I am missing a student on my ParentSquare account. How can I add another student?
To add a child or school, you should contact your school(s) directly to update your contact information. You should confirm that the same email and phone number is on file for all children at all schools. The day after the change is made at the school, you should be able to see the updated information in ParentSquare.
