ParentSquare: Download the Family App for Easy Communications!
Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) has launched a new communications platform to encourage a stronger school to home connection. ParentSquare, a unified app for school communications, will allow families to receive announcements from the division and their schools and teachers in one place, with the added ability to engage in two-way communication in the preferred language through text messages, conference scheduling and sign-ups.
Families can get started in three easy steps:
  • Download the ParentSquare app for iOS or Android devices from the Apple App store or Google Play store.
  • Log in to ParentSquare using the email address or cell phone number you provided to your school(s) and confirm the contact information.
  • Start receiving posts that are relevant to your student.
ParentSquare will streamline communications and help empower everyone within the school community to stay connected and informed. With ParentSquare, families can:
  • Receive messages from school via email, text or mobile app.
  • Choose to receive information as it comes (Instant) or all at once at approximately 6 p.m. (Daily Digest).
  • Communicate in their preferred language.
  • Send two-way text messages with automated translation between staff.
  • Receive attendance notifications with the option to send in a digital note to excuse a student's absence.
  • Sign up for parent-teacher conferences.
  • Sign permission slips and more, all from your computer or mobile device.
Make sure you are ready to communicate with ACPS in the new school year — download the app once and use it from PreK-Grade 12! A video overview of ParentSquare can be accessed in English and Spanish. Amharic and Arabic videos will be available soon.
