While there are a lot of different calendar views, most families really will need to subscribe to just a few, depending on how much you want to see.
First, log into the parent portal, scan the buttons on the right-hand side of your browser window, and click on “subscribe” in order to access your own household calendar.
This will bring in all major dates (vacations, days off, parent-teacher conferences, big holidays, or all-school events), plus any other events that are relevant to your family based on how you are classified in the system. Families with children in the Lower School, for example, will automatically see Lower School events. Read the instructions carefully to do what works for your personal calendaring platform.
Below that you will see calendars specific to your child’s scheduled classes and assignments. We do not recommend that you subscribe to these as they will bring in a LOT of detailed events that are best viewed within the parent portal itself.
Next down the page are the Athletic Calendars. The sports you see in the list are only those which your kids have signed up to participate in, so it’s easy to subscribe to their sports only.
IF, however, you would like to subscribe to other athletic calendars, you can switch the tab at the top from “My Calendars” to “School Calendars” and select the sports you wish. Do NOT subscribe to “All School Events” if you’ve already subscribed to your household calendar.
Keep in mind that you can always check the school calendars in the Parent Portal, to see what else might be happening in other divisions, but anything we have tagged “All School” will show up in your household calendar. You shouldn’t miss anything!
