    Dear Parents/Caregivers,

     Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!   Although school does not begin until September 3rd, it is now time to get reacquainted with/introduced to our Genesis Parent Portal.  This portal is available via our website at www.tenaflyschools.org, under the Parent Tab.

    Please remember to review and update your students emergency contact information under the contacts tab. It is very important to keep your contact information current. Also, in order to gain full access to all screens in the portal, parents/guardians must complete ALL required permissions and health forms for each student in his/her portal account.  Failure to do so will block access to student information including students’ class schedules and activation of network accounts. Hard copies of schedules cannot be provided and students may not participate in activities that require parental permission.

    ALL PASSWORDS HAVE BEEN RESET as indicated in the body of the email notification. This can be changed after you have logged in.  The portal contains important information that should only be accessed and completed by a parent/guardian. You should not give your username and password to anyone, as you will be granting someone other than yourself access to these permissions for your child.  Students in THS and TMS have their own portal account which will open when schools begin – provided parents/guardians have completed their permissions and health forms.

    The portals for Tenafly High School and the Tenafly Elementary Schools are set to open at 3pm on Friday, August 23rd.   At that time, schedules for the High School and the placement of our elementary students will be available.  Final schedules for Tenafly Middle School will be available on the parent portal after 3 p.m. on Tuesday, September 3rd.

    When you log into the parent portal you will be automatically directed to the FORMS TAB.

    • This tab contains forms that have questions which require parent/guardian consent and approval. Every question must be answered with a Yes or No. When the required permissions and health forms are answered by the parent/guardian, click the box “This form is ready for final submission” and then select “Update Answers”. This will automatically update the student’s record.
    • The system will only unlock when all students permissions and health forms on the account have been completely answered and updated. You will then be able to access all the available screens.

    If you have any questions, please call your child’s school. Enjoy the remaining few days of the summer and we look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday, September 3rd 2019.
