District Communications

The Community Relations Specialist helps make sure parents and community members can easily access quality, useful, and clear information about the school district.

We share information in many ways, including the district website, social media, email communication, weekly district-wide e-newsletters, hard copy newsletters, and through the local media.

District & School Communications

Sharing information helps us build trust with our community, measure our impact, celebrate successes, and learn from our challenges. There are a number of ways you can stay informed!


Centerville City Schools uses ParentSquare for district and school communication. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent/guardian, using the email address and mobile/cell phone number on file in our student information system.


Updating Your Contact Information

Please review your contact information at the start of each school year when you update your child's Returning Student Data. If your email address or phone number changes during the school year, please contact your child's school office or follow these instructions to update your contact information:

  1. Log into the Home Access Center using your parent/guardian account.
  2. Click on the Registration icon.
  3. Scroll down to Contacts and click on the Edit button on the right side of the page.
  4. Save your changes in HAC. They will automatically update in ParentSquare overnight.

Note: You will only have access to edit your own contact information. Any other parents/guardians will have to log into their own account to edit information.

District/School Newsletters

Parents/guardians of Centerville students will automatically receive a weekly e-newsletter from the district, as well as electronic messages from your child's school and/or teachers.

Emergency Alerts

ParentSquare allows us to contact our school community within minutes. These time-sensitive messages, such as school closures, are sent via email, phone, text, and/or app notifications.

Distributing Information about Community Activities

As a service to the community, the district shares information about special events, camps, sports leagues, and other activities with our families.

Centerville City Schools uses ParentSquare to distribute information to families. All parents/guardians and community members will have access to a group where they can find information about community activities. You can join this group here.

Information from community organizations will ONLY be distributed in electronic format through ParentSquare. Approved information will be shared through the ParentSquare app each Wednesday during the school year (and on select dates during the summer) and will remain available to users once posted, both through the app and on the district website.

Community organizations wishing to share information with families in Centerville Schools must complete a Request to Distribute Information form at least three days prior to your requested post date.
