ParentSquare - Resources for Parents & Guardians

Oregon City School District uses ParentSquare as the primary tool for communicating with families. This includes communications for emergencies and school closures, school announcements, and upcoming opportunities.

Our district is using ParentSquare because:

  • It gives parents/guardians more control over how and when they receive messages

  • Is an all-in-one communications platform that is more convenient

  • Allows teachers to communicate with families using the same platform as our district and their school

  • Has many added functions beyond communications.

Digital Flyers - Peachjar

Oregon City School District has partnered with Peachjar to provide digital distribution of important school and community information directly to families. Adoption of this new platform is in line with out efforts to provide our community and students with access to beneficial programs and resources. We believe that increased participation in school and afterschool programs can help improve student outcomes at our district.

Interpretation Services

Some of our schools will be using a system called PickUp Patrol (PUP) to help us track absences and dismissals. PickUp Patrol will save us a great deal of time in the office and reduce interruptions in our classrooms, while providing you with a convenient way to make changes to your student’s dismissal plans.  Most importantly, it will help us ensure that your students arrive safely to their correct after-school destinations.

Use the PUP web app for:

ATTENDANCE: Notify the school office when your student will be absent, arriving late, or leaving early. When you report your child absent you will be prompted to complete a health survey.

DISMISSAL CHANGES: Submit changes to your student’s regular dismissal plans. For example: 

  • Your student normally rides the bus, but is getting picked up today.

  • Your student usually goes to aftercare, but is leaving early for an appointment.

All plan changes should be entered in PickUp Patrol by 1:00 PM (12:00 PM on Wednesdays). Notes, emails or phone calls will not be accepted for changes after 1:00pm daily, except in emergencies.


Getting started with PUP:

Parents will receive an automated registration email through PUP. Once registered, parents can add the PUP app to their home screen. The app can be accessed by computer or smartphone, is free to parents, and you can use it from your smartphone or computer -  PUP is not accessed through the app stores. Instead, you’ll simply add it to your phone’s home screen for easy access. 

If you have any questions, please contact, the Redland office at 503-785-8000, or PickUp Patrol at
