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.
Families will receive communications through email, phone calls and text messages. If a parent decides that they do not wish to receive notifications by text message, for example, then they can opt out when they receive a text message. Most messages will be sent via email so families must check and ensure the district has up-to-date email addresses. Important messages including weather-related school closing information will be sent by email, text messages and phone calls. Please make sure all family contact information is correct in Genesis.
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 email@example.com .
Password = Network PIN
If you have any questions regarding student access or an issue with Genesis, please contact your child’s school.
