Parent Access Link

Parent Access
All parents of children in grades 3-8 have access to Parent Access, our online program that gives parents the ability to view their children’s grades. If we have a current email address for you then you received an email from Genesis, our database provider with your user name and password. If we do not have a current email address for you please call the main office and speak to Mrs. Doran to update your email address. Her phone number is 732 349 2355 x 2002. Mrs. Doran will then notify the Diocese and Genesis will send you your credentials.

If you FORGET or LOSE your password please call Mrs. Doran in the main office at 732 349 2355 x2002. Please do not call the Diocesan office for this information. The individual school is the only one who knows their parents and the Diocese cannot give out that information. This protocol is in place for the protection and privacy of the parents and students.

St Joseph Grade School is pleased to present this opportunity to you so you may have a window into the teacher’s grade book.
