Instructions for using the SMS shared calendars, shared with parent via email. I will write it up for posting to the web site.

The web site works best on regular computer, but there is an alternative if you want to use your mobile device. I check my Google calendar all the time using my iPhone.

You will need a Google account. 

Sign in using your favorite browser and then open another window and go to the calendars you want to track.

At the bottom of each calendar, there is a Google button.

When you click on that you will be prompted to add this calendar to your own.

Once you have done this, you can access that calendar from your mobile device using Google drive. Just go to and sign in on your device.

You can now choose between the day and month.
And go to the description if it is available.

Want to add just the calendar to your home screen so you don't have to bother with Google Drive? Click on Add to Home Screen.

Just click on it and you are ready to go.

I'm going to add these instructions to the web site if they are helpful. Tell me if I've missed a step or if I need clarification anywhere.

Glad to know that the calendar is useful!
