About District and School Communications to Parents

NVUSD places great importance on communication as we work together, with our parent community, to continually improve our schools and ensure student success.

A: Students who will be changing schools next fall (starting 6th grade or 9th grade), or entering school (starting K or TK), are tagged in Aeries (the student database) as pre-enrolled at their next school. We want to be certain your student's new school can send you information now and over the summer. That new school will show up on your ParentSquare account. You will not receive messages sent to the school's current (2018-2019) families, but only the messages intended for incoming families. Thank you!


We know that everyone prefers certain types of communication, and we have developed several to accommodate all families in our district: emails, text messages, phone calls and postal mail.

However, we cannot provide parents with communication if we do not have their needed contact information on file at our schools. It is very important for all parents to provide ALL of these on the student emergency form at the beginning of each school year: mailing address, mobile and home phone numbers, and email address.

NVUSD uses ParentSquare for auto-communications using primarily text messages and emails. A ParentSquare account is automatically created for each parent, using their preferred email address and mobile phone number. Parents are encouraged to register their ParentSquare accounts so that they can set preferences for the type of message they want to receive and how often.

How to Stay Informed
