  • How to Combine/Merge Accounts

    You can now combine your multiple accounts in ParentSquare. Cases where combining accounts makes sense include:

    • User is a staff member and parent: combine staff account with personal parent account to access both with one login. All emails and phone numbers remain associated.
    • Parents share an email or home phone: their accounts will automatically link if they are listed with shared contact information.
    • User is missing a student or school from their main account: they have a second account for student or school that can be merged.

    If you are both staff and a parent, you have the choice to have two separate accounts (one as a parent, and one as a staff member) or you can combine the two into one account. If you want to merge your two accounts, make sure your parent email in Skyward is your work email. If you would like them to become or stay separate, please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/6jRGK41iw3TkGTD16
