The School Calendar of Events is available to download and import into Microsoft Outlook, the Palm desktop program or any other standard calendar program.
Choose either a Comma Separated Values (.CSV) file of the calendar (for Microsoft Outlook 2003, Palm and some other calendar programs) or iCalendar (.ics) format.
iCalendar (.ics), is an open standard supported by an increasing number of calendar applications. For example, Apple's iCal (Mac), Microsoft Outlook 2007 (Windows), Google Calendar, and Yahoo beta Calendar can all subscribe to an .ics calendar and receive updates automatically on a configurable basis.
Right-click (Windows) or Ctrl-click (Mac) on the link to save (Save Link/Target As) the file.
Save the file to a location that you will remember.
After it has finished downloading, locate the file and follow your calendar program's instructions for importing events.
All dates, times and locations are subject to change.
Once you import the file into your Outlook calendar, any changes made or added will need to be manually updated in your Outlook calendar. In addition, if you have imported the CSV once and then import it a second time, it will create a duplicate entry. Tip: Delete the first schedule, before downloading an updated CSV file.
