Subscribing to a calendar using an iCal address link

Here at HPSD, we use iCal calendars for school events, performance workshop rehearsal schedules, and more. It allows us to schedule events that are a long way out and add detail to each listing as the events get closer. When you take the proper steps to subscribe to our calendars, you will get these updates automatically straight to your smartphone and your other favorite devices.

Please be careful: It is very easy to download an iCal file from the link, but this will give you a static file. To ensure you do not miss updates to the calendar you are attempting to follow, do not download the iCal file, but rather subscribe using the device-appropriate steps described below.
