MCS Launches School Attendance Notifications Through Parent Square

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are excited to introduce a new and efficient way of keeping you informed about your child’s attendance at school.  MCS has activated the School Attendance feature in ParentSquare. We believe this change will benefit you and your children.

Daily Attendance Notifications

Through ParentSquare, you will receive a prompt notification informing you of your child’s school attendance. These notifications will help you stay up-to-date, ensuring you are notified if your student is not present at school. MCS will send the notifications in both email and text formats. If a text notification fails, the system will automatically deliver a voice message to ensure you receive important updates. 

Attendance Notes from Parents and Guardians

One of the key benefits of this feature is that it allows you to send attendance notes back to the school through the Parent Square app if your student is absent. This feature significantly reduces the need for phone calls to the school and makes it more convenient for you to communicate important information about your child’s absence. Parents and guardians may still call the main office and send in a written note to notify us of an absence, but most will find using the Parent Square platform more convenient. The reason for the student’s absence must be reported to the school within two days, per district policy.

We are confident that utilizing this tool will significantly enhance communication, making it easier for you to stay informed about your student’s attendance.
