Today at 3pm we will be opening the Genesis Portal for parents and students. The portal will include student information like homeroom teachers, schedules, bus stops, lunch balances, and more.
Please be aware we have our back-to-school forms that must be completed by a parent/guardian before the portal information is viewable. For High School schedules, please be aware we are still updating Science labs – your student’s science lab may not appear at this time.
Also, please be sure to update your contact information on the CONTACT tab as well.
This year there is no longer free lunch for all students. If you would like to apply for the National Free & Reduced Lunch program, please do so in the back-to-school forms at this time (you will see the form in the list of FORMS in the Parent Portal).
For parents that are new to the district, the primary guardian should receive a Welcome Email with a link to login to your account. If you have an existing account but do not remember your password, you can try the password reset on the Genesis Parent Portal page. If you still have issues logging in or need help changing your email address, please contact your school’s main office during open office hours 8am to 2pm.

Mr. Shea shares the district’s plans for an unplugged Tech Awareness day for this Friday, December 3rd and Wellness Weekend December 4th and 5th. Our Tech Awareness Day is an effort to help students, families and staff to unplug and have good discussions about the use of technology in our day-to-day lives. Here are a few great topics to discuss with your child:
Internet Safety and Privacy
Screen Time (and maybe use an app to track screen time)
Digital Citizenship and Anti Bullying
Internet Validity and Fake News
All are great topics and you can find resources to help with these discussions at our parent help site at vtsd.com/tech
And to read more about our Wellness Weekend, check out Ms. D’Avino’s parent letter!
Ms. D’Avino and Dr. McKay share all sorts of good news! From the Hall of Fame Dinner to Pumpkin chucking to $4 million in new state aid, there is plenty to celebrate in Vernon! Check this video out to hear more!
For anyone who is interested in subbing in our schools, there have been some recent changes:
Potential substitutes now need the completion of 30 semester-hour credits (reduced from 60 credits) if you are currently enrolled in an accredited institution and be 20 years of age.
This is a great opportunity for students who may be returning home from college for the upcoming holiday season or for students living home and attending college currently. It is also ideal for anyone enrolled in a college or university program who is interested in earning $125 per day. Substitute teaching is a great way to earn money while gaining experience in the field of education.
