ParentSquare

Our parent notification system, ParentSquare, supports more than 100 languages and reaches parents via their preferred platform - app, email, text, voice-operated devices and web portal. Our district, administrators and teachers use ParentSquare to send important messages, attendance notices, permission slips and sign-up forms.

Parents can also view and sign secured documents and check outstanding lunch balances.

  • To access ParentSquare notifications, parents must first enroll their student at OUSD.

  • After enrollment, parents will receive a text or email notification from your child's school to register with ParentSquare.
