MIS is providing all our school-wide and group-specific calendars via Google Calendar System so that you can pick and choose calendars that are particular to your family’s needs. You will then be able to view all of them combined together in one calendar…and can even add in your own personal family calendar so that all of your scheduling is together in one place! These calendars can be accessed from anywhere that you have access to the internet, as well as synced for many cell phone calendars.
It takes a few minutes to set up, but will save you much time in the future. To get started, we suggest that you print out this first page of instructions, then follow the steps below.
1) Go to www.google.com/calendar and click on the button labeled Create an account. Follow their directions to set up your personal calendar.
2) To add MIS calendars to your calendar system, you will need to enter in the URLs for each MIS calendar that you wish to see. These URLs are listed at the bottom of this page.

3) Add additional MIS calendars to your calendar system, by entering in their corresponding URLs as instructed in steps 2a through 2b.
If you are new to Google Calendar, we suggest you find out more information on how to use their calendar system by clicking Help at the top right corner of the calendar, then click on Getting Started Guide.
