ParentSquare is the primary school-to-home communication system of the Harrisville Central School District. ParentSquare is designed to be a “one-stop shop,” helping to both keep families informed and strengthen their connection with the district. The platform allows the district to inform families of news, potential emergencies and school announcements in a timely fashion.

SchoolTool Parent Portal

Harrisville Central School District uses a web-based student data management system known as SchoolTool. This system allows parents to monitor their student’s progress at any time. This can be helpful to monitor attendance, work completion or grades on exams/tests.

In order to take advantage of SchoolTool, you must establish an account. You may make a SchoolTool Parent Portal Account Request online. Once you have received your new account, it is recommended to review the SchoolTool Tutorial.

Trouble Logging In?

If you are using a bookmark to access SchoolTool, please be aware the login page changed during the summer of 2023. Create a new bookmark after signing in using the current SchoolTool login page.

Social Media

In order to maintain a strong connection to the greater Harrisville community, the district maintains certain social media channels. We encourage you to join us there and post your comments, questions and media.

Your voice matters to us. However, we ask that your posts on the Harrisville Central School District social media pages follow our rules and guidelines, and that anything we talk about there is district-related. Because our focus has always been students, the social media pages will be closely watched and moderated.

  • Ask questions, but please maintain student privacy.
  • Share media, but be mindful and use good judgment about what you post.
  • If you run a local business, we wish you success, but we will not allow promotion of your business on our social media pages. We are education focused.
