District Launches ParentSquare, Our New Communications Tool

Our district’s goal is to inform parents and guardians of safety alerts, school events, and general school information in a consistent and timely way. Starting this summer, all schools in the Corvallis School District will use a new parent/guardian engagement tool to connect with families.

ParentSquare will replace SchoolMessenger and will allow the District and schools to do everything from sending out alerts by text and phone to sharing email messages with families.

  • Parents/guardians will automatically be added to this communication system with the contact information provided at registration.
  • Emergency alerts will always be sent by text or phone call.
  • General announcements will also be sent via this new system to your email address provided at registration. Emails may be viewed in your email inbox or in the ParentSquare app, once you have activated your account.

School websites and email news will continue to provide general school news and announcements.

Want to activate your account?

Parents/guardians will soon receive an invitation email or text to join ParentSquare. Please click the link to activate your account. It takes less than a minute. You can use ParentSquare on any device. You can use it from a computer at: or you have the option to download the free mobile app for Android or iOS on your phone.

Note: For those who download the app to your phone, all of our student information is displaying the 2019-20 information until the registration system rolls forward to 2020-21. This usually takes place in late July.

Parents/guardians do not need to activate their ParentSquare account in order to receive district and school messages.

We are excited to offer this new communications tool to keep our families engaged and informed as we begin the 2020-21 school year.
