We are excited to announce that beginning the 2024-25 school year, we have adopted a new form of school-to-home communication at Moses Lake School District called ParentSquare. This unified communications platform is designed to keep parents and guardians informed and encourage greater engagement and connection with Moses Lake Schools. It provides a safe way for district administrators, school principals, teachers, staff, and parents to:

 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
  • Send and receive school and class information
  • See calendar items
  • Sign up to volunteer
  • and much more . . . all in one centralized place!


Our goal in adopting ParentSquare is to unify and simplify the number of communication tools to increase parent/guardian involvement.  Parents will be able to keep track of news, activities, classroom updates, and events from all their children’s schools in one place.

All district and school, grade level and classroom information will be sent to your computer or phone via email and/or text. ParentSquare will replace communications received via Remind (which has been recently been acquired by ParentSquare), Skyward, and SchoolMessenger.

My email is correct in ParentSquare. Why am I not receiving emails?
Please check your spam to see if any ParentSquare messages ended up there, and mark them as "Not Spam." Also add [email protected] to your email contacts so your server recognizes our messages. If you still are not receiving emails, please contact us at [email protected] so we can assist you.
How can I add another child to my account? How can I add another school to my account?
If you wish to add another child to your account, you will have to ensure your school's information system has registered your contact information and you are associated with your child. ParentSquare will always reflect the most current information we have received from the school’s information system.

I am getting too many messages from ParentSquare, is it possible to receive less notifications?

Is it possible to contact my child's teacher directly and privately?
Contact your child's teacher privately by using our direct messaging tool. On the home page, click on "Messaging" in the left sidebar. From here, you can send a direct message to your child's teacher that only you and the teacher can see. You can also send messages to other staff members at the school, such as your child's coaches and club leaders. Here is a link to our help page on direct messaging
How can I edit my sign up?
In order to change your sign up, you must delete your existing sign up and sign up again for the correct slot. To delete your sign up, hover your mouse over your name and you will see a trash can appear to the right of your name. Click on the trash can and your sign up will be removed. Then, you can click on the "Sign Up" button that corresponds with the correct slot.
Can I change my RSVP?
If your plans change and you would like to change your RSVP, click on "Sign Ups and RSVPs" under the participation tab in the left sidebar. On this page, find the event that you had previously sent an RSVP for and click the green button that says "Change my RSVP" on the right side.
I've received an invalid registration link, what should I do?
If your registration link expired, you will need a new one. Please contact your school's admin or send us an email to [email protected] and ask for a new link to be sent to you.
I am both a staff member and a parent in the district. How can I add my child to my staff account?
It is likely that you have two separate accounts: a parent account with a personal email and a staff account with your school email. We can merge your staff and parent account so that you have access to your children and school under one single account. Please email us at [email protected] and include the emails and phone numbers you are using.
Can I add a room parent or classroom assistant to my class?
Yes, if you would like to add a room parent to your class please visit Admin>Classes. From this page, click "add user" and type in the name of the individual you would like to add. Click on their name to highlight it and then select the role you would like them to have: room parent or assistant/other. Here is a help article on assigning a room parent to a class.
I am in charge of a club or sport, can I communicate with just those parents even if their children are not in my class?
Teachers have the ability to create groups with students who are not in their class. Please visit Groups>New group>New Static Group. From here you can create the group and choose a name and description for your group, as well as whether or not you want the group to be public or private. At the bottom, you can add your members by searching for them and checking the box next to the name of the individuals you would like to add. When you are finished click "save" at the bottom. Here is a help article on creating a group.
Is it possible to contact a few of my students' parents privately?
If you would like to contact a few of your parents without posting to the entire class, please use our messaging feature. Select "Messaging" from the left sidebar on the homepage. Here, you can select either a single parent to message, or multiple parents. Just begin typing their name in the recipient field, and they will appear as an option. If you select more than one recipient, the choice will come up to have a private message or a group message. A private message will create individual threads to each recipient, whereas a group message will create one thread where all recipients can communicate. Here is a help article on direct messaging.
I am doing a project in my class and I need parent volunteers and items for our project. Can I ask for these on ParentSquare?
ParentSquare offers the capability to ask for both parent volunteers and items on ParentSquare. Please go to “New Post” and create a post about your class project. Then, in the left sidebar you can select both "Ask for Items" and "Request Volunteers." Next, input the items and amount you need, as well as how many volunteers you need and what activities they will be doing. Once you are finished, click "Post Now" and watch your sign up fill up. Here is a help article on creating sign ups and volunteer lists.
Can I manually add a parent to a specific sign up?
Yes, if you have parents who have contacted you about a sign up but have not signed up in ParentSquare, you can add these users manually. Please login to ParentSquare and go to the signup post you would like to add the parent to. Then, on the sign up post please click "add someone" above the sign up button next to the time slot or item you would like to sign them up for.
