    The Murray City School District is the primary communications tool for the District to post information
  • Press Room
    The press room of this website displays press releases, media alerts, announcements, and links to news stories about District happenings
  • Social Media
  • Your Murray Schools (YMS)
    YMS is the District newsletter that is periodically (3-4x each year) published in the Murray Journal newspaper.
  • ParentSquare
    ParentSquare is MCSD's official communication tool with families of students. This web- and app-based platform communicates messages by way of the downloadable application, email, text, and outbound voice messaging. This tool is ONLY for official school communications (see below for PeachJar for non-school entity communications). Families need to create their ParentSquare account by going to and using the email address they have in the District's student database called Aspire. This will validate their permission to create/use a Parentsquare account. From there, you will be notified as messages are posted from your school and the District.
  • PeachJar
    PeachJar is a third-party email platform whereby governmental, non-profit, and for-profit entities can communicate information about events, activities, and programs available to parents and students within their schools or the MCSD. Submissions in the form of a PDF flyer can be made at by creating a user account, paying a small fee, and designating the schools and dates you wish to submit your flyer. These are then approved by MCSD and sent out on Fridays. Please ensure all submissions are one file (of 1 or more pages) and no more than 4 MB of total space.
