How To: Website Notifications & Alerts

Calendar Alerts

Sign up to receive updates for calendar events or specific team schedules. Select "Alerts" on the calendar page and then customize your alerts. Please note: if your e-mail address is not associated with your family's parent portal account, you will need to log out of your parent portal account and click "Register New User." This will allow you to create an account to set site alerts with your e-mail address and/or phone number. You can then log out of that account and back into your parent portal account without jeopardizing your site alerts.
