ParentSquare

WCS ParentSquare Graphic

Wabash City Schools is excited to be using ParentSquare to communicate with parents and guardians about classroom and building events and announcements starting in the summer of 2024. As a company, ParentSquare was launched in 2014 and has quickly become the premier school-to-home communication tool in the US.  ParentSquare provides a simple and safe way for everyone at school to connect. They support automatic translation to over 100 different languages!

We will use ParentSquare to announce delays/cancellations, school events, but that is just the beginning! Teachers will be able to send direct messages to families about classroom activities and parents and guardians will be able to respond. We will be able to securely send documents such as report cards, test results, and permission slips.
