Teachers, parents, and students can subscribe to a MyGPS calendar (RSS feed) which will sync to your personal Outlook or Apple calendar. Calendar feeds can include your daily schedule (students & faculty), games & practices, school events, employees, or the entire US or MS calendars. Whenever there are changes to calendar events in MyGPS, the calendar feeds that you subscribe to will update on your personal calendar as well. This is a good way to track events that can change frequently. Subscribing to calendars does not change your status to “busy” – your personal events will layer over your subscribed events.
