Welcome to ALJ
Dear Arthur L. Johnson High School families, guardians and visitors,
On behalf of the Clark Board of Education, administration, faculty, secretaries, and custodians, I am honored to welcome you to the 2019-20 school year at Arthur L. Johnson High School. Whether you are new to our building, our district, or are returning for another year, please be assured that we are all dedicated to providing an educational experience of the highest quality for each and every student that walks through our doors! We are committed to Inspiring Greatness in all that we do! Throughout the 2019-20 school year, we will continue to hold the highest academic and behavioral expectations for all school community stakeholders. We shall hold ourselves, our school community, and our students accountable for cultivating an environment conducive to raising productive, well-rounded, and self-reliant young adults.
Although ALJ’s Back to School Night is again scheduled for early September, please note that our Guidance team and teachers are readily available to you. As a result, parents are highly encouraged to contact teachers and counselors via email and or telephone in order to secure conferences at anytime throughout the school year. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! If you would like to meet with anyone of our ALJ Team, please contact our main office, who will arrange the meeting.
As we continue our journey toward creating a seamlessly transparent learning environment we excited our district has recently upgraded its student data management system by implementing the Genesis software interface. This program is a versatile one that should greatly enhance communication between our school district and families by, for example, being inclusive of an updated Parent Portal. In order to begin the process of registering with the program, please go to https://parents.genesisedu.com/clark. In order to log into the system, use the email address where your child(ren)’s report cards have previously been sent as your username. If you are new to our district, use the email address(es) that you provided on the registration paperwork. For your password, enter: clark1234. Kindly know that you will be able to change your password and other information, including your email address(es), after you initially log in. A Genesis user guide will be sent to the email account attached to your login information as well. This year we will again be using email as the primary mode of sending written communication home throughout our district. As a result, please make certain that your email address(es) is/are kept current and updated within the Genesis system.
Please remember to check our school’s web page everyday – details each day’s special events and archives the entire year’s activities.
I am here to serve our school community and the best interests of our kids and therefore, if you have any questions, comments, and or concerns, always please feel free to call or e-mail me at your convenience. I am truly looking forward to the 2019-20 school year! Good Luck!
Very truly yours,
Principal of ALJ
