Metuchen High School will be hosting fall parent/teacher conferences on November 2, 2020. There will be appointments available between the hours of 1:30 pm and 4:30 pm, and again between 6:30 pm and 8:30 pm. All conferences will be virtual and conducted via Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In order to register for a conference with your child’s teacher, you will need to log into your parent genesis account after 3 pm on Monday, October 26 2020. The registration window will open at 3 pm on Monday and will remain open until 8 am on Friday, October 30, 2020.
Once the registration tab is open, please click on the “conferences” tab in genesis and select which teachers you would like to meet with as well as an available time slot for the meeting. It is recommended that you do NOT book back to back conference appointments due to the fact that conferences are being held via zoom and time to transition between teachers’ various zoom accounts will be necessary.
Each MHS Teacher will post their zoom link on their teacher website for conferences. At the time of your child’s conference, simply click on the zoom link and join the teacher’s waiting room. When he/she is ready for your conference at the prescribed time, they will let you into the meeting. Please expect to remain in the waiting room for a few moments as the teachers finish up conferences with other parents prior to letting you into the session for your conference.
If you would like to meet with your child’s Phys Ed teacher, please email him/her directly at their Metuchen schools email address as listed on the MHS website as PE teachers’ names are not listed on your students’ schedule and therefore you will be unable to schedule a conference with them through Genesis. When your child’s PE teacher receives your email, they will simply reply to you with their zoom link and a proposed meeting time.
If you would like an appointment with your student's school counselor, please email her directly as well. (You will not be able to schedule an appointment with the counselors via the Genesis portal).
As a reminder, students will be dismissed at 12:30 on Monday November 2, 2020 and Wednesday November 4, 2020 and there is no school for students on Tuesday November 3, 2020.
Financial Aid Information Night - VIRTUAL
Presented by The Associate Director of Financial Aid at Monclair University and hosted by the MHS School Counseling Department
We invite you to join us via Zoom on the evening of Monday, November 2nd at 7PM for a presentation designed just for junior and senior parents preparing for the college financial aid process.
Get the answers to all of your questions about the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Aid) HESSA (New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority) and the CSS Profile. Gain a better understanding of federal and state aid programs, and other sources of funding.
Some people believe that they don't need to complete the FAFSA because they make too much money and won't qualify for any aid. It is a mistake not to complete the FAFSA, and here are some reasons why:
1.It may make you eligible for a low interest loan.
2.It may be required by some merit scholarships.
3.It may be necessary in order to borrow money so that payments can be spread over a longer time period.
4.It may be that your fortunes change through the year and having the form on file can help make a difficult time a little easier.
We strongly encourage you to join us and learn more about this critical aspect of the college admissions process.
