Rotation Groups on Parent Portal

Parents are now able to log into the Genesis Parent Portal to see which rotation group their child has been assigned to (Blue Team, Gold Team, or Virtual Student). Schedules will be available later in August as the district continues to balance scheduling and the needs of those who have requested an Exclusively Virtual learning experience.  For specific questions, please contact the Principal of the school that your child attends.

Please note – we cannot accept requests to change teams as it will unbalance schedules across schools.

  • Notebooks (1 per class)
  • 3-ring binder with lined paper
