Now you are ready to make your first request! You will need to decide if the booking is one date or multiple dates or multiple rooms.

Do not use the Irregular Schedule or your request will be declined!

Step 5

Now you are ready to book your event.

Event Title will be your organization. For instance, Rancho Bernardo High Girls Basketball would go in the Event Title. Please do not use this field for putting the description of the event in. If you put in Girls Basketball, your request will be denied. Please put the full name of your organization. This field will show up on the Calendar so be sure you don't fill it in with something brief, like "Basketball." A better title would be: RBHS Basketball Games.

Event Description you will put a description, for example, "Rancho Bernardo High Girls Basketball CIF Tournament."

Area - do not choose an area. This field should state "--Select Area--".  This is not a required field.

Location this is a pull down menu and you will need to choose your location. You should see all the school sites listed here. It is not necessary to choose an Area.

Rooms Click on the binocular icon. A new window will pop up with all the 'rooms' available for booking at the selected location.  You may choose up to 50 'rooms' on one request as long as the time and dates are the same for each room. Remember all the boxes with the red checks are required information.

Start Time This will be the time your event actually starts.

Setup Begin Time If you need 30 minutes prior to your start time to setup, you will need to make sure you have listed that time here. The room will only be open for the time your have requested here. So if your event is scheduled to start at 2:00 pm and you need 30 minutes to setup, you will need to put 1:30 pm as your Setup Begin Time. Keep in mind, custodial staff does not setup nor clean up any activity on school property. Restrooms will close 30 minutes prior to the end of your event. If no set up time is required Setup Begin Time and Breakdown End Time are not necessary. Rooms are available from 7:00 am - 10:00 pm due to City law and the California state civic code.

Insurance Information is required for all external groups. This information may be left blank if the insurance information is not available.
