Florence Twp. School District -BACK TO SCHOOL EDITION- #6

Welcome Back FTSD!

As we begin to welcome students back to our campuses on Monday, September 21, 2020, we would like to highlight a few important points for a safe reopening. Please note these significant changes as the COVID 19 pandemic has most definitely altered many aspects of our lives. As always, our students' and staff's health and safety are most important to us!


While many adjustments have been made to accommodate social distancing and the safety of students with our hybrid in-person and remote learning, our goal is for a successful and exciting school year! Again, we thank you for your continued support during this time. If you have any questions please contact your child’s teacher or building administrator to assist. We look forward to seeing our students back on campus soon!

Health Screening Form

All students and faculty MUST complete the online health screening form every night. The student form located in the Genesis Student Management System must be completed prior to your child arriving each day.

To obtain the form:


To make a shortcut of the website on a smartphone:

  • Go to the Safari app on your smartphone and in the search area type in https://parents.genesisedu.com/florence

  • Go to the bottom of the screen and click on the following icon

  • Scroll until you see the option (Add to Home Screen)

  • This will add the website icon to your main screen for easy access.


This form is available 6:00 p.m. prior to the school day and for the safety of our students and staff it must be completed prior to the child arriving on campus each day. If the form is not completed, your child should not report to the school building. We do understand that completing the form daily may be an inconvenience; however, it is for the safety of all students and staff.
