District Communication moving to Parent Square

January 15th, 2021
Waterloo Families,
Waterloo CSD will soon be rolling out ParentSquare. A new application designed to increase communication with our school community.

Waterloo CSD will be using ParentSquare for school communication, primarily with email, text, and app notifications. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent, using their preferred email address and phone number. 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.

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 6 pm 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*
  • Sign forms & permission slips, and more all from your phone or web portal*

*Some features will be rolled out over time*

Please look for an email invite from ParentSquare to join or go to to sign up. Additional information will be communicated in the coming weeks.


We promise to only send you information closely related to school. You can opt-out at any time. See this document Waterloo CSD ParentSquare Opt-Out Form for more information about opting-out from our communications.
