    new Communication Platform

    We are very excited to adopt a new form of communication at Mother Lode! You are used to us sending communications through the Blackboard system, but we are moving to a new and innovative system called ParentSquare. Beginning July 1, 2021, we will no longer use Blackboard. We will begin using ParentSquare!

    ParentSquare is designed to keep parents informed and facilitate participation at school. It provides a safe way for the school principal, teachers, staff, and parents to:

    • Send and receive school and class information
    • Share pictures and files
    • See calendar items
    • Sign up to volunteer
    • and much more . . . all in one centralized place!

    Introducción a ParentSquare 

    Beginning July 1, 2021, all school, grade level, and classroom information will now be sent using the Parent Square system to your computer or phone via email and/or text - or you can download the free App.

    The Help & Support question mark in the top right corner of the app can help answer most of your questions. So join in! We will be communicating through the new system soon so please download the app right away so you don’t miss anything!

    Emergency Procedures

    Should an emergency arise at school, we will use our emergency phone notification system to send out a message to advise you of the situation. As a parent, you can ensure that fire fighters, law enforcement, and school officials are able to handle an emergency. Please do not rush to the school to pick up your child. Emergency plans are in place to reunite students with their parents as quickly as possible.  Our most recent School Safety Plan can be found on the School Safety page of our website.

    Bus Application/Pass

    Bus Fees for the 2021-22 school year are at no cost to students who used the busing services last year. We will also offer no-cost busing services to all other students to the extent staffing levels will allow. While we won't collect bus fees, you need to fill out and sign the required paperwork, denoting stops and times.

    Nutrition Services has software available for families to apply online for free or reduced-price meals that is available under the nutrition tab of the district and school websites. We encourage families to complete the online application if they have access. Families without access to the online application may fill out paper application.
