East Hartford Public Schools' Communications Office aims to provide clear, accessible and timely information to district families, while celebrating and sharing the stories from our students, staff and schools to the East Hartford community and beyond.

We encourage you to follow EHPS on social media, read our monthly district newsletter, and browse our Latest News page.



East Hartford Public Schools uses ParentSquare for school communication, primarily with email, text and app notifications. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent or guardian, using their preferred email address and phone number from PowerSchool. We encourage parents and guardians to activate their ParentSquare accounts so they can download the free mobile app and update their preferences on when and how they are notified.

With ParentSquare, parents and guardians can:

- Receive messages from the district and school via email, text or app notification
- Choose to receive information as it comes or all at once with a daily digest at 6pm
- Communicate in your preferred language
- Comment on school postings to engage with your school community
- Direct message teachers, staff and other parents
- Participate in group messages
- Sign up for parent-teacher conferences and RSVP for events
- Sign forms & permission slips, receive report cards, sign up to volunteer and more all from your desktop or mobile device

Activate your Account: Visit and enter the email address you provided in PowerSchool in the Register field. You will receive a confirmation email directing you to activate your account. Once logged in, click your name at the top right to set your notification and language preferences. 

Download the App: Download the free mobile app for iOS or Android to access ParentSquare from anywhere! You can also access ParentSquare on the web at
