How to ParentSquare


PARENT-RUN or STUDENT-RUN COMMUNICATIONS

Several communities have their own separate non-PTA communications. The PTA does not have any responsibility for these channels or what is posted by other parents, OTHER THAN recognizing that if a PTA Board/Chair/volunteer uses those channels, they may be viewed by other parents as representing the PTA.
