Dear Parent(s) / Guardian(s):
I hope this letter finds you and your family well and that you are looking forward to a fantastic end to the 2018-2019 school year. As summer approaches, we are already well underway in planning for an outstanding 2019-2020. This is to remind you that all of the Beginning of the Year paperwork, such as our annual parent information packet and Back-to-School forms are now completed online through the Genesis Parent Portal.
On or about August 20th, we will be sending an email to notify you that the portal within Genesis has opened and that you are able to complete the Back-to-School forms online. It will also provide you instructions on how to complete the forms. It is important for you to enter this information in a timely fashion since some relate to safety. Additionally, early completion will allow your child to immediately begin using technology, accessing digital resources, and ensures that we have the information we need to support your child’s education starting day one.
Please know that we are sending this letter to both Guardian 1 (the legal guardian with whom the child primarily resides) and Guardian 3 as listed in Genesis (Genesis defines Guardian 3 as Legal guardian with a separate mailing address (also known as a “2nd mailing”).
In August, all Guardians listed will receive the email regarding the availability of the online forms, but only Guardian 1 will have form completion rights. If you have a situation where this needs to be changed, or you forget the email address you used to register, please contact your child’s Main Office secretary. It is important to refrain from sharing your login credentials with anyone, including your child. Our secretaries will be randomly calling a number of families to make certain the process worked smoothly for you and to ensure the reliability of the information entered into the system.
If you prefer to have hard copies of all the forms, please contact the Main Office of the school your child will be attending for 2019-2020. A hard copy packet will be mailed home on or about August 20th, which you will need to complete by hand and return to the school. Thank you very much for your time and your support. Enjoy the remainder of this school year. Wishing you a fantastic summer surrounded by family, friends, food and fun!
Joseph J. Del Rossi, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
