Summer Packet: 2018-2019 School Year

Dear Parents/Guardians:


Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year in the Old Tappan Public School District!


I hope you are enjoying the summer weeks and that you and your child(ren) are looking forward to beginning another school year soon. Mr. O'Neill, Mr. Cooper, and I are anxious to fill the schools again with sounds of learning!


The Parent Summer Packet is integrated into Genesis, our online Student Management System and Parent Portal. When the Principals are ready to release teacher assignments at
BOTH TBD AND CDW, you will only be able to access that information through the Parent Portal if you have completed the required forms in the Parent Summer Packet.


Use the following URL (and bookmark it) to get to the Genesis Parent Portal:

https://parents.genesisedu.com/oldtappan


Use your Genesis username and password to access the Parent Portal. Our new parents should have received usernames and passwords via email from the school secretary. If you are unable to access Genesis, please contact your school’s Main Office.  


Once in Genesis, you will be brought directly to the Forms Library.

  1. The Summer Packet information is available under the “Documents” tab. Please be sure to review all of the documents.
  2. Complete all of the required forms under the “Forms” tab. All submissions must be made PRIOR to the first day of school.


If you have more than one child in our schools, then you must submit the Summer Packet forms for each student, by selecting each child from the blue drop-down menu.


During mid-August, you will receive another correspondence letting you know that you may go back into the Parent Portal to access the name of your child's grade-level teacher (TBD) or homeroom teacher (CDW). However, in order to gain access to this teacher assignment information, all required forms in the Parent Summer Packet must be submitted.


Our first day of school is Wednesday, 5 September 2018, and it is an early dismissal for students. Students in Grades 1-8 will be dismissed at 12:30 PM. Students in Kindergarten will be dismissed at 11:30 AM. Please plan accordingly.


As school event dates become available, they will be posted to our digital calendar on our District’s website. Please note that our Back-to-School Nights are as follows:


CDW Middle School - Thursday, 13 September 2018

TBD Elementary School - Thursday, 27 September 2018


We are looking forward to a fabulous school year ahead!


Respectfully,

Danielle M. Da Giau, Ed.D.

Superintendent
