Snyder ISD uses ParentSquare for school communication, primarily with email, text and app notifications. Here’s what you can do with ParentSquare: • Receive messages from the school via email, text or app notification • Choose to receive information as it comes or all at once at 6pm daily • Communicate in your preferred language • Comment on school postings to engage in your school community • Direct message teachers, staff and other parents • Participate in group messages • Sign up for parent-teacher conferences with smart online technology • Send payments, sign forms & permission slips, receive report cards, sign up to volunteer and more all from your phone or web portal ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent, using the email address and phone number that was entered in your Skyward Family Access account when you registered your student. We encourage parents to access their accounts so they can download the mobile app and update their preferences on when and how they are notified.
