Riverhead Central School District Launches New Communication Platform to Enhance School-Home Connection

ParentSquare Unifies Communications into One Platform

RIVERHEAD, NEW YORK (AUGUST 2023) — The Riverhead Central School District has launched ParentSquare, an accessible and unified school-to-home communication platform that will be used to reach and engage with parents and guardians and provide them with the opportunity to actively participate in their children’s educations. ParentSquare is now available for staff and parents to use on their computers or mobile devices.

“While multiple tools were previously used, unifying communication lines into one platform provides a more effective and seamless experience for both families and staff,” said Riverhead Central School District Superintendent Augustine E. Tornatore. “This intuitive, two-way platform will also foster greater communication and family involvement, especially through the one-to-one and group messaging functions between families and staff with real-time language translation.”

Through ParentSquare, parents and guardians can also keep track of the news, events and activities of their children’s schools in one location. They can enjoy pictures posted by teachers, fill out forms and permission slips, sign up for parent-teacher conferences and check grades and attendance.

“Efficient school-to-home communication has grown in importance,” said Riverhead Central School District Director of Technology Robert Hines. “This encouraged the District to adopt ParentSquare, and we are looking forward to enhancing communication access with our families. ParentSquare also provides an eco-friendly approach by reducing the amount of paper used to send necessary communications.”

The Riverhead Central School District’s partnership with ParentSquare will enable stronger engagement between schools and homes and empower the community to stay connected and informed.
