Minot Public School District uses ParentSquare for school communication, primarily with email, text and app notifications. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent, using their preferred email address and phone number. We encourage parents to access their accounts so they can download the mobile app and update their preferences on when and how they are notified.

PowerSchool Parent Portal
Logging out and logging back in is one fix, however deleting the app and reinstalling seems to be the best fix currently.
We have no control over the app. We prefer parents and students to use the website.
