Almost all of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-confirmed cases this year of EV-D68 infection have been among children. Many of the children had asthma or a history of wheezing. Many parents continue to be worried about the outbreak and want information about what they can do to prevent illness and protect themselves and their families.

In effort to strengthen communication with parents and guardians, we wish to bring the Genesis Parent Portal to your attention. The Genesis Parent Portal will enable you to access your child(ren)'s grades, attendance, disciplinary infractions and other important information online as well as forms that may need your attention. All schools have not completed their implementation and may not offer as much information as other at this time. Not to worry! It's coming soon!
