Logo for ParentSquare

Branford Public Schools will begin 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. This is a soft launch at this time with full implementation scheduled during the 2024-25 school year.

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 with a daily digest at 6pm 

  • Communicate in your preferred language

  • Comment on school postings to engage with your school community

  • Direct message teachers, staff and other parents

  • Participate in group messages

  • Sign up for parent-teacher conferences

  • Send payments, sign forms & permission slips, receive report cards, sign up to volunteer and more all from your desktop or mobile device

We are taking some additional steps to be certain we know who is in our schools at all times. If you are entering a school while school is in session, you will be asked to present ID and sign in as a visitor or volunteer. This means you will be required to:

  1. Present a scannable Government-Issued Identification (ID) when visiting the school.

  2. The school staff will scan your ID and print an official name badge. ID's are referenced against a criminal and sex offender database and not saved in our system.

Government-Issued Identification (ID) Examples include:

  • Driver’s License (from CT or another state)

  • State Identification Card (from CT or another state)

  • Passport ID Card
