In an effort to improve communications, the Randolph Township School District has switched to the Blackboard Mass Communications system, known as Connect5I or Parentlink. The new system uses data from family Genesis accounts and will be updated daily.

Important Information for Parents
We have made changes to Genesis to support improved communication and allow students access to their own information. Parents must update their contact information through the Genesis parent portal (https://parents.rtnj.org) as soon as possible. This will allow you to be contacted by school personnel. Genesis will send daily updates to our new Blackboard communication system, which is what we will use to send out all parent communications including snow/emergency day alerts. If you would like to receive these important alerts, it is imperative that this information is kept up-to-date.
Please note that you will no longer have the option to decide how you wish to receive messages as you did in Honeywell. Instead, if you decide that you do not wish to receive notifications by text message, for example, then you can opt out when you receive the first message. Most messages will be sent to you via email so you must check and ensure the district has your current email address. Important messages including weather-related school closing information will be sent by email, text messages and phone calls.
In addition to updating contact information, the Genesis parent portal now has important documents and forms posted for your review and acknowledgement. Please visit https://www.rtnj.org/Domain/1007 for further instructions. High School parents should await additional instructions regarding important documents to fill out on Genesis before the portal will display final student schedules. This information will be sent in a separate alert. All parents will be asked to fill out several forms including a media release form, Family Care Form and some other forms pertinent to specific grade levels. Parents and students will also be asked to read and sign the code of conduct, attendance regulations and the student handbook.
Students now have access to Genesis using the student portal (https://students.rtnj.org) which they can access using the following information:
Username: StudentID@rtnj.org …. for example firstname.lastname@example.org .
Password = Network PIN
If you have any questions regarding student access, please contact your child’s school.
