The North Syracuse Central School District has moved to a new communication platform called ParentSquare. ParentSquare is a unified app for school communication so parents and guardians can receive all announcements from the District, their children’s schools and teachers in one place, with options to specify how and when parents/guardians are notified.

Parents with students currently enrolled in the NSCSD should automatically receive ParentSquare messages. Email invitations have been sent to all parents in the NSCSD to activate their ParentSquare account. 

Those who do not register will still receive text, email, and phone notifications. Parents who do create an account can interact by viewing photos, downloading attachments, leaving comments, messaging teachers, signing permission slips and managing their communication settings and preferences. 

If you have a child in the District and you are not receiving messages, please contact our Communications Office at (315) 218-2190 or send an email to Laurie Cook, our School Information Officer at 

PLEASE NOTE: ParentSquare does not replace the phone calls, e-mails and text messages that have been sent to families in the past. ParentSquare enhances that communication by allowing parents to log into their ParentSquare account online or download the ParentSquare App so they can see all messages sent in one centralized location. This will help us eliminate the issue of missing messages that may be caught up in e-mail spam filters.

By unifying multiple tools into one communications app and service, ParentSquare provides a seamless experience for parents and staff. Parents will be able to keep track of news, activities and events from all their children’s schools in one place.

The District hopes that ParentSquare’s intuitive, two-way platform will foster greater communication and family involvement. With ParentSquare, parents can enjoy photos posted by teachers, fill out forms and permission slips, sign up for parent-teacher conferences and much more. School staff and parents can engage in both one-to-one and group messaging with real-time language translation.

Community Groups

The North Syracuse Central School District uses ParentSquare to automatically send notifications to parents, students and staff. Community members can also sign up to receive email notifications. There are several "Community Groups" to select from and you can choose as many categories as you'd like. Learn more and sign up by clicking here

Notification Categories Are:

Community News/General Announcements/Group Fundraising Flyers - From time-to-time, the North Syracuse Central School District sends messages at the request of NSCSD-­affiliated booster clubs and PTOs asking for the information to be ­distributed to our families for the purpose of gaining support for their ­programs. Subscribe to this category if you would like to receive these types of messages or other non-urgent notifications.

The NSCSD automatically notifies parents and staff of school closures and weather-related delays and dismissals. Community members can also subscribe to messages in this category by registering for this group.

NorthStar Lights Newsletter Subscribers - The North Syracuse Central School District produces a digital newsletter, "NorthStar Lights," to share important information and good news with NSCSD families and staff. Parents and staff members automatically receive the newsletter through ParentSquare. Grandparents, community members and all friends of the NSCSD are welcome to subscribe by providing an email address. Newsletters are emailed each week when school is in session. Help us share the good news and the great things happening in the NSCSD! 

Urgent Athletic News and Updates - Is your child involved with athletics or extracurricular activities for the NSCSD? Subscribe to messages in this group if you want to receive text alerts about event date, time or location changes related to athletic and extracurricular events.
