  1. How to configure your calendar
  2. Attendance on Holidays

Section 1: How to configure your calendar

Go to New Semester Setup > View All Semesters > click Calendar

 

The calendar configuration page should look like this:

 

Select the appropriate school days that your school use (Monday, Tuesday, etc.) and then click on any date on the calendar to add an event. Add a name on the “Day Label” field (eg. Labor day), then click Set.

 

You can edit labels and clear off-days by re-selecting the date.

When finished adding holidays for the entire semester, scroll up the page and click Save.

 

Section 2: Attendance on Holidays

You will also see this label in the student profile’s Attendance calendar.
