Need an Administrator?

Email Jenn Henriksen - jhenriksen@northfieldschools.org


She will check/schedule the Conference room and Michael's schedule. She will communicate via email confirmation/or conflict of the event with you.


If Michael is unable to attend the event, she will email an Administrator who is available, schedule with that person and communicate back to you. She will then schedule the Conference room for you, if needed.

Send Invitations

Invite those you want to the meeting and choose to send them an email. It is your responsibility to invite guests to attend. (Admin will be invited through Jenn)


The invited guests will get an email notification and the event will be on the MS SpEd Cal.


Anyone will be able to view the details of the event - the student name, those invited and those attending.


Those that have been Invited need to Respond - Yes - No or Maybe. The Responding can be done from the email Invitation or from clicking on the Details in the calendar.


When looking at the Details of an event, if the name

  • is BLACK - they are attending
  • is Grey - they haven't responded
  • has a strike through - they are unable to attend
