Dear Parents,ParentSquare logo

We hope you are enjoying using ParentSquare as our new parent communication platform.

You receive primarily text messages and emails; phone calls are used only for attendance or urgent information.You don’t have to download the ParentSquare app, but if you do, you can also receive messages through the app.

Data, meaning your contact email address and cell phone number for texts, is the heart of the system: the right data, entered correctly, in the right places. Our student database (Aeries.net) feeds contact information to ParentSquare, which allows us to contact you.

If your ParentSquare communication isn’t reaching you yet, that indicates a data issue that we want to identify and fix.

If you aren’t receiving any ParentSquare messages at all from your child’s school, please contact your school office and ask to review your contact information in Aeries with a staff member.

If you use the ParentSquare app and have more than one child in NVUSD, you should be able to see all of your students in your account. If you can’t, please contact kcliff@nvusd.org to ensure that your contact information is consistent across each of the schools.

We’ve also included here some online resources …

Full and Fair Funding
Despite boasting the fifth-largest economy in the world and the highest gross domestic product of any state, California sits near the bottom nationally in nearly every significant measure of school funding and school staffing.

The California School Boards Association (CSBA) has launched a new website advocating for the Full and Fair Funding students deserve and California public schools need to prepare graduates for college, career and civic life in the 21st century. To ensure that California remains the home of innovation and opportunity, CSBA is calling on the state Legislature to raise school funding to the national average by 2020 and to the average of the top 10 states by 2025. 

Visit the website and sign the Full and Fair Funding petition.
