The Oak Grove School District recognizes the importance of communicating with parents and guardians to support all students academic success. The following tools are used for parent and guardian communication:
ParentSquare and StudentSquare
OGSD uses ParentSquare to communicate with you at the school, and in your classrooms and groups as well as StudentSquare for grades 5-8. ParentSquare provides a simple and safe way for everyone at school to connect via phone, email, text or app. You can use ParentSquare on any device. You can download the free mobile app for Android or iOS and you can also use it from a computer at: www.parentsquare.com.
Activate Your Account
The District sent an invitation email or text (that is on file with the school on infinite campus) to join ParentSquare. Users can click the link to activate their account. See below for examples of what these activation links will look like. Users can also register through the ParentSquare app which can be downloaded for free. You can also go to parentsquare.com and log-in using the email address you provided the school.

Peachjar Flyer Distribution
It replaces paper flyers. Schools send e-flyers to families, and outside organizations can send approved e-flyers to all families in the district. Look for the Peachjar icon on your school’s website. Peachjar is used exclusively for distribution of district- and school-approved flyers related to our community events and resources.

Media Requests and Emergency Communication
All media requests to interview, videotape, or photograph Oak Grove School District Staff, Students, or Board Members should be made through the Superintendent's Office at (408) 227-8300 or via email at email@example.com.
Media on School Grounds: Before visiting a school campus, the Media should contact the Superintendent's Office. Media must remain on the public sidewalks and may not videotape or photograph any students/staff on campus unless arranged through the Superintendent's Office. When approved to videotape, photograph, or interview students and/or staff, a district representative will accompany the media to minimize disruption and assist with any additional requests.
Student Media Release: Federal and state law allow students and parents to opt out of the release of certain information about students, including photographs. The district works with each school to determine who has a photo/video release form on file and who cannot be photographed and interviewed.
Emergency/Crisis Communication: We will work as quickly as possible to provide accurate information to the media. Our first priority is ensuring the safety and security of students and staff and communicating about the emergency with staff and parents/guardians. We then work to provide timely information to the media on the emergency and its impact on students and staff. In an emergency, media may be assigned to a designated location to ensure their safety and minimize disruption to emergency response efforts. In the event of an emergency after hours please contact 911, First Alarm at 831-662-7455 or 408 448-9739.
