Genesis Head of Schools Update 7.31.22

Dear Genesis Family,

Welcome back!  We are excited to receive our scholars and families back for another year. It was great to see many of you at Open House this past Friday and we are excited to begin what we believe will be a great year.

Important updates are below:

General Patience – We ask all parents to be patient for the first week or two.  Every process may not work perfectly according to plan, and we will have to adjust. Schedules will change.  Families may be enrolling throughout the week.  It is always a part of the experience at the beginning of the year.

Arrival – Regular drop-off begins at 7:15 am. (early morning care begins at 6:30 a.m. for those who registered with Global Tech).  Scholars will have their temperature checked before exiting the car lane.  Parents will be expected to take their scholars home or get them medical attention if they have a high temperature.  Parents are also expected to remain in their cars.  Scholars will be escorted to designated areas by staff. Please be prepared to be patient as we work through this process.

  • Note: Parents of Kindergarten and 1st-grade scholars (along with 2nd grade scholars NEW to Genesis) should have received information about the option of a later arrival for the first two days of school.


Covid-19 Protocols – Due to the continued spread of COIVD-19 we are asking all parents to continue to send their scholars with masks.  Staff members will be wearing masks until further notice.  Genesis will continue to take temperatures as scholars arrive (as noted above). Classrooms have air filters and cleaning protocols are in place. Additional notes on protocols are in the attached Re-Opening plan, which will also be posted to the Genesis website.  Additional questions can be directed to

Parents in Building – Parents should not expect to enter the building during arrival or dismissal unless they have an appointment or are directed to do so by staff. Parents should be prepared to escort scholars into the building if they arrive late (after 8:00 a.m.). Parents who enter the building will be expected to wear a mask.

Dismissal – Dismissal begins at 2:45 for K-4, and 3:45 for grades 5 and up.  All dismissals will be from the car line. Again, patience will be important.  All families will be given dismissal numbers and cards to put on their car dashboard within the first week of school to facilitate the process.  Staff will also have walkie-talkies as back-ups. We will adjust as needed. Note: Please do not park in front of driveways or block streets in the surrounding neighborhood.

Parent Contacts – Please note that our Executive Directors have been assigned differently this year.  Their contact information is as follows::

Your primary contacts are still your scholar’s teachers (for instructional information) and our front desk/customer service specialist Ms. Cazaubon for general information (404-990-3844 and Other important contacts include:

Cell Phones – Remember that Genesis does not allow scholars to bring cell phones, smart watches, or any other personal electronic device (PED) on campus. If parents have extraordinary circumstances that requires their scholar to have a cell phone on campus, those parents must reach out to one of our Deans of Students to inquire about a cell phone contract.

Schedules – Please do not expect to see schedules on the first day.  Changes may occur during the first week and schedules will be sent as soon as everything is finalized.

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow morning as we begin this great journey together.

Be safe, be healthy, be blessed!
