UPDATED Student Attendance Procedures

UPDATED Student Attendance Procedures
Posted on 03/29/2020

On Monday, March 30, ARIS will be starting a new daily routine that will combine the student check-in and parents/guardians submitting any absences on the Genesis Portal. The new procedure will require students (or parents/guardians) to actively login to Genesis each morning and indicate that the student is “present” or “absent.”

It is important to note that this daily routine will need to be completed by 9:30 a.m. each day.

If your child is not reported in Genesis as being present or absent, a School Messenger Alert will be sent to you by 11:00 a.m.  At that time, you will have the opportunity to login to the Genesis Portal to update your child’s attendance.

To report your child present or absent for the day:

  1. Log into the Genesis Portal.  

  2. On the Student Data > Summary tab, click on the Notify Attendance Office button.

  3. The Notify Attendance Office screen will open.  Select the appropriate attendance value for the current day ("present" or "absent").  Please note that you may only report attendance for the current calendar date.  You may not report attendance for future dates.

  4. If the note is being submitted from a Parent Portal account, all students associated with the account can be reported present at one time.  Select all applicable students.

  5. Click Submit to Office to report the attendance.

  6. Once the note is processed by the Attendance Office, the update will be visible in the bottom section of the Notify Attendance Office screen under the Submitted Notification.
