We are phasing out the Infinite Campus messaging system & ParentSquare will officially take its place in 24/25, though you may receive some messages these last few weeks as school. ParentSquare is an interactive platform & offers some cool features, such as: 

  • 2 way communication with staff, students & parents
  • Translation - I speak Japanese, you speak Mandarin - PS will automatically translate for us
  • User preferred notifications (get all you messages at 6PM, or whatever time you choose, rather than sporadically when they are are sent - except emergencies, those are sent in real time, no matter what)
  • A social media type platform for classrooms or teams that only your class/team can see
  • You can 'sign' permission slips/forms through PS
  • Volunteer
  • View calendars
  • View classroom requests

You will receive messages whether you activate your account or not. Activating your account allows for 2 way communication & a more interactive experience. NCSD is excited about ParentSquare, we appreciate your patience as we work out the kinks!
