This summer, the district moved to a new text/email/phone communication platform called ParentSquare.
ParentSquare is a unified communication platform that offers a whole host of tools which allows district, school administrators, and teachers to more effectively communicate and engage with families and students.
Parents/Guardians who activate their account can interact by signing digital permission slips, managing their language preferences, contacting teachers, and much more. (Even if you choose not to activate your account, you will still receive text, email, and phone notifications from the district/school.)
If we have your correct phone number on file, you will now receive text messages from the number 36794 that begin with [GFSD]. You don’t need to remember that … it’s just FYI so you aren’t surprised by the new number and format.
We’ve got an app! You can download the ParentSquare mobile app to your phone, and choose whether to receive push notifications, get automatic language translations for messages, and more. Download in iOS here, or download in Android here.
There’s much more to come on Parent Square. Activate your account today!
