Recommended Parent Apps

October 18, 2022

We recommend LHS parents download the following two apps:

ParentSquare – all district and school communication now comes through Parentsquare.

If you like receiving school messages and updates right as they are sent, great! But if you find that intrusive or overwhelming, you can easily change your notification settings. Over half of our district’s parents and guardians receive ParentSquare messages in “Digest,” meaning they receive them all at 6:00 PM daily. And don’t worry–if you choose Digest mode, you will still receive any mass emergency notifications (for school closures, etc.) at the moment they are sent.

To Change Your Notification Method
1. Go to and log in.
2. Click the drop-down arrow next to your name in the upper right.
3. Select My Account.
4. Click Notification .
5. Select Off, Instant, or Digest for each type of notification (Email, Text, App), and for each school or district if there is more than one.
6. Click the X in the upper right to return to Home.
