Yes. All parents have a ParentSquare account. ParentSquare is the primary tool for district and school communication. Individuals who do not activate their account in ParentSquare will still receive an email digest at the end of each day that communication is sent out to them.

Yes, but please note that the Kennewick School District, your school, and teachers use ParentSquare to communicate with parents and guardians for information including emergency messages as well as information closely related to the school’s educational mission.
