Logging In and Out

Logging In

During the registration process, you provided the district with your email address and a Welcome Email was sent to you from Parent Access with a randomly generated password.  The very first time you login, you will be prompted to change your password.  Passwords must be at least 7 characters. If you have not received a Welcome Email, please contact the main office of your child's school to verify the email address we have on file.  To log into Genesis Parent access:
  1. Go to the Genesis Parents Access link that can be found on District Home Page and each School’s Home Page or use the following link:
  2. https://parents.pthsd.k12.nj.us
  3. Enter your Email Address in the USER NAME field.
  4. Enter your password in the PASSWORD field.
  5. Click the LOGIN button.

What if I Forget My Password?
Next to the LOGIN BUTTON, you will see a FORGOT MY PASSWORD link.  Click the FORGOT MY PASSWORD link, enter your email address, and you will be emailed a randomly generated password.  You will be required to change this new password the first time you login.  If you do not receive an email, please contact the main office of your child's school to verify the email address we have on file is correct.

What if I Forget My User Name?
Your Genesis Parent Access User Name is the email address you provided to the district when you registered your child in school.  If you did not receive a Welcome Email, are unsure of the email address on file, or wish to add/change the email address on file, please contact the main office of your child's school.

Logging Out

It is important to log out of Genesis Parent Access properly.  In this era of Internet access, it is important to always properly close your sessions so that unauthorized persons cannot gain access to your information.  Closing the browser without logging out leaves your session open on the Genesis servers.  This creates a security hole that only you can close.  Be secure, always log out properly. 
This applies not only to Genesis Parent Access, but also to every Internet/Web Application you use. 

To logout, click the LOGOUT button located in the upper right corner of every screen.
