ParentSquare Attendance Notices with New Feature

Autauga County Schools is now sending student attendance notices through ParentSquare. When your child is marked absent, you will receive a text message or email, according to your preferences, notifying you of their absence. As a convenient feature, you can now submit a digital note directly from that correspondence. These new notes are only required when you desire to use a “parent note” for your child’s absence. Please be reminded that students are only allowed seven of these excuses for the school year.
