The ARIS Home Connection
December 2018 & January 2019
WE ARE ACHIEVING EXCELLENCE TOGETHER!
It is the intent and hope that this monthly communication will help provide important reminders and information about upcoming events, as well as to serve as a link for you to your child's school.
Reporting Your Child's Absence
If your child is going to be absent, you have two options for reporting it. You may notify the ARIS attendance line by phone at (908) 431-6600, press 3 for ARIS, and follow the prompts OR simply submit the information via the Parent Portal in Genesis. To submit via the Parent Portal.
After login, you will see links to “notify attendance office” on both the student summary page or under the attendance tab. Once on the Notify Attendance Office page in the portal, you will be able to choose whether the student will be absent or tardy. You may choose one date or a date range and will have a comment box where an explanation can be provided regarding the tardy/absence. Once notification is submitted to the Attendance Office, the portal screen will maintain a historical record of this and any prior notifications submitted.
IMPORTANT: Please don't use both methods for the same absence. Use one or the other.
