Genesis Family Handbook

All families are responsible for the information in the Family Handbook.  The required parent signature pages are included in the online registration.  If you have completed your new or returning family registration for the 2020/2021 school year you have already completed the required parent signature pages.  Scholars are required to sign and submit a separate commitment page and that will be completed in their homeroom class, however, parents should go over this information with scholars at home as well.

Please click the link below to review the Family and Scholar Handbook.

Families will be notified when changes are made to the handbook

Before/After School Care Options

For the 2020/2021 Academic year, Global Tech Academy will be our aftercare provider. All families are required to set up a family account with Global Tech even if you do not foresee using our aftercare provider.

Details regarding registering for Global Tech are forthcoming.

Please be sure to sign up before TBD.

Dismissal Times and Sibling Care

Scholars, not attending an afterschool provider, must be picked up within 30 minutes of their dismissal time. Scholars not picked up by their scheduled dismissal time will proceed to Global Tech Academy. Parents will need to park and pick up scholars from GTA and pay appropriate fees.

Sibling care, from 3pm to 4pm, is offered for families with lower school scholars with an upper school sibling. This allows for families to come at one dismissal time to pick up all of their scholars. Sibling care is only for siblings.  

School Lunch

Our food service provider is SLA Management. You will have the option of ordering school lunch and also purchasing breakfast. SLA offers healthy options including vegetarian and gluten free lunch options. More info will be available at the open house.

Students are also welcome to bring their own lunch but please be mindful that Genesis is a Nut Free Campus. No peanut products are allowed on campus.
