Report Student Absence

HMS parents can report a student absence or tardy by calling our attendance line at (908) 431-6600 press 2 for HMS and follow the prompts or  via the Parent Portal in Genesis.  

Notifying the Attendance Office via the Genesis Parent Portal

When logged in to the Genesis Parent Portal, you will see links to “notify attendance office” on both the student summary page or under the attendance tab.  Once on the Notify Attendance Office page in the portal, you will be able to choose whether the student will be absent or tardy.  You may choose one date or a date range and will have a comment box where an explanation can be provided regarding the tardy/absence.  Once notification is submitted to the Attendance Office, the portal screen will maintain a historical record of this and any prior notifications submitted.
