Arena Scheduling For Current 8th Grade Students


Arena Scheduling will be opening by grade level beginning next week  (see schedule below).  However, ALL students will be able to VIEW the master schedule in their Skyward Student Access portal beginning Friday, May 8th at 4:00.  This will give students the opportunity to plan their schedules prior to entering the live scheduling window assigned to their grade level.


We have attached written instructions for navigating through Arena Scheduling as well as a video which can be accessed at this link:



Things to Note:

When you log in to Arena Scheduling, you must log in using Student Access (not Family Access). 

In the “view only” access that begins this Friday, you will only be able to view the time periods for the courses and alternates you chose during course selection in December/January.  You will NOT see the entire master schedule. 

You will only have the option to “Add” classes during your scheduling window. 

At the end of each scheduling period, Skyward will lock and submit schedules for that grade level. 

If you are concerned about “getting a seat” in a course, please note that simply clicking “Add” will secure the seat for you.  You DO NOT have to submit the schedule in order to save your seat.

Some courses may already be scheduled for you.  For students participating in extracurricular activities, counselors worked from the rosters provided to us by your activity coach/sponsor and placed you in the periods your coach/sponsor advised.

If you are taking dual credit classes and you provided your counselor with verification that you registered at WC for those classes, they were placed on your schedule.

Classes entered by the counselor are locked and cannot be changed by the student.


If you run into conflicts, please reach out to your counselor for assistance.
