North Colonie to Launch New Parent Communications Platform

We are excited to announce that North Colonie Central School District will be adopting a new form of school-to-home communication next parentsquare logo month called ParentSquare. This unified communications platform is designed to be a “one-stop shop” to help keep you informed and strengthen your connection with the district, and will replace SchoolMessenger.

You should expect to receive an initial email and/or text message from ParentSquare next week, which will ask you to accept an invitation to activate your account and log in for the first time. You may choose to use a computer or the app on your smartphone.

Starting on October 5, 2022, all district, school, grade level and classroom information will be sent to you through ParentSquare. Our current system, School Messenger, will be phased out on or around that date.

We will continue to use Infinite Campus/Parent Portal and Google Classroom for information such as grades and assignments. 

Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing more information, including additional resources to help you get acquainted with the new platform. If you have any questions or concerns, please call Director of Technology Julie Scriven at 518-785-5511 x3333.

We look forward to communicating with you through ParentSquare soon. We expect it will help make engaging with our school community an easier and more convenient experience.
