Activate Your ParentSquare Account to Verify Your Contact Info
Lansingburgh Central School District is excited to announce that starting in 2022 it will be using ParentSquare as its primary method of communication with student families for important alerts and updates.
In January 2022, ParentSquare will completely replace the district's current school-to-home communication service (SchoolMessenger). This means all important text messages, phone & email alerts from the district about topics like early dismissals, closures, bus delays, school safety (ex: lockout notifications) and more will be sent to families using only ParentSquare from that date forward.
