Access to many of our calendars is based on your membership in the Middle and Upper School Faculty Google Groups. If you cannot see the correct calendar(s), you need to join the correct groups.

You can obtain membership as follows: First, do either or both of these:

  1. Go here for our Upper School Google Group.

If you see ''You must be a member of this group to view and participate in it'', click ''Apply for membership'' and follow the prompts to apply for membership. If, after 24 hours, you still cannot see these calendars, please follow up with us via your Tech Support Request.
