ParentSquare

The Jackson County School System welcomes you to ParentSquare.

Beginning in August of 2024, the Jackson County School System will be moving to the ParentSquare platform for all district, school and classroom communications. This will consist of primarily email, text and app notifications. ParentSquare will officially replace Remind and Infinite Campus for two-way communication methods. Infinite Campus will still serve as the ParentPortal and will continue to house student records and other pertinent information. 

ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent/guardian, using their email address and/or phone number that is listed in Infinite Campus. A notification will be sent to families on Monday, July 29, inviting them to join the ParentSquare network on behalf of the Jackson County School System. Students will utilize StudentSquare to communicate with teachers and organization sponsors. 

What is ParentSquare?

ParentSquare is a simple-to-use platform that provides a safe way for everyone at a school to communicate and connect. With ParentSquare, you'll be able to:

  • Receive messages from the district and school via email, text and app notification

     

  • Choose to receive the information as it comes or all at once at 6 p.m. daily
  • Communicate in your preferred language
  • Comment on district, school and classrooms postings to engage in your school community
  • Direct message teachers and staff
  • Participate in group messages

 

Why ParentSquare?

The Jackson County School System made the decision to move communications to ParentSquare in order to better serve and communicate with our families. Previously, the system and schools used a variety of applications and platforms Beginning in August of 2024, JCSS and its member schools will communicate through this application. Parents and families also have the ability to log in one time and see all of their students in one place. 

How To Sign Up

On the morning of Monday, July 29, parents and families will receive an email and/or text message on how to activate their ParentSquare account. You can also install the ParentSquare mobile application on your smart phone and follow the prompts to sign in. 


INFO! You will only receive a ParentSquare invitation and access if you have an active JCSS Parent Portal account and are listed as the guardian of the student(s).  For ParentSquare, you will need to use your email or phone number that you have provided to the school system and is in your Infinite Campus (Parent Portal) account, or otherwise ParentSquare will not link your account to your student's information! Your email and/or phone number must match the contact information that is in the school system's data base. 

If after activation you need assistance, contact the media specialist at your child(s) school.
