Community members can join ParentSquare to receive district messages


Community members are invited to join ParentSquare, the primary communication platform used by the Waterville Central School District.


Waterville Central School District Community Group on ParentSquare is for members of the community who do not have students active in the district, but would still like to receive notifications from the district.


Current staff, students and parents/guardians do not need to sign-up for Waterville Central School District Community Group.


Those who register will be able to:

  • Receive district communication via email or app notification
  • Manage notification settings
  • Communicate in their preferred language

Group members would receive the following notifications:

  • District announcements that pertain to the whole community
    • Examples: community forums and events, voting information, significant news and information
  • Board meeting announcements

ParentSquare can be accessed via parentsquare.com or the ParentSquare app, which is a free download for iOS and Android users.


To join Waterville Central School District Community Group in ParentSquare:

One of the benefits of creating a ParentSquare account is the ability to manage your notification settings. We want your ParentSquare notifications to come to you when and where you want them. Users can set their preferences to either Instant or Digest for email, text messages and the app. Instant users will receive a notification the minute a message is posted. Digest users will receive one daily notification at 6 p.m. containing all messages posted that day.


Here are the instructions to update your notification settings in the ParentSquare app:

  • Sign in to your ParentSquare account
  • Click the triple bar on the top left corner
  • Select “Account” on the menu on the left side
  • Click on “Notifications” on the menu in the middle
  • Choose how and when you want to be notified

Here are the instructions to update your notification settings on the ParentSquare website:

  • Sign in to your ParentSquare account
  • Click the drop down arrow next to your name in the upper right corner
  • Select “My Account”
  • Click “Notification Setting” on the menu on the left side
  • Choose how and when you want to be notified

Instant and digest notifications apply to general announcements and messages such as announcements, direct messages and reminders. In instances when the district needs to communicate an urgent message, a notification will be sent immediately, regardless of the user’s preferences.


Support resources are available to you at any time. You can always click on the question mark on the upper right corner of the ParentSquare website or click on the “Help” tab (click the triple bar on the top left corner) in the ParentSquare app.


Our goal is to provide members of the community with a platform that encourages greater engagement with the Waterville school community while keeping you informed in a way that is convenient.
