9th Grade Orientation - Class of 2021

All 9th graders and transfer students new to WHS are invited to our 9th Grade Orientation on Tuesday, August 29 at 1pm @ Waldwick High School.  During the orientation, students will get to walk their schedule, check their locker and hear from student leaders on what to expect at WHS.  In addition, all students who have all of their forms submitted through the Genesis Parent Portal and have purchased the Chromebook insurance will be issued their Chromebooks.  

This student focused event will start promptly at 1pm in the Little Theater and will last until 2:30pm.  The peer mentors and I are looking forward to meeting all of you and are excited for the 2017 - 2018 school year.  

All students need to bring a copy of their schedule with them.

WHS Summer News - Online Forms & Schedules now OPEN

This year we are trying something new and opening Genesis Parent Access earlier so parents have the ability to complete all of the necessary forms. Once the required forms are completed, your child(ren)’s schedule will be visible on both the parent account and student account.

Through Genesis Parent Access, all parents are required to complete the following forms under the Forms Tab. Once you click on the form link, you have the ability to read and sign all forms online.  

High School Parent Signature Sheet (Required 9-12)
Chromebook/GAFE/Devices Sign-off Form (Required 9-12)
PayForIt is up and ready to accept payment for the Chromebook Insurance Fee. Directions for online payment.

In addition to the two forms mentioned above, you will also see forms for Random Drug Testing and Senior Privileges.   Why and who needs to complete these forms.

Random Drug Testing

High School Seniors Only (Required 12th Grade Only)
Any senior looking to park on campus or take advantage of the "Open Campus" policy needs to have the Senior Privileges form submitted through the Genesis Parent Access.  This form will also collect your child’s name as you wish it to appear on their high school diploma.

Also within Parent Access, you have the ability to update your phone numbers and email addresses for all contacts.  You can also create and add new contacts and update your health related contacts.

Please submit these forms no later than Wednesday, September 6.  I will be sending more information out about the start of the school year in a few weeks.  I don’t want to rush the summer away.  

Enjoy your August!
