You can also get to your calendar via a URL:

http://calendar.google.com/a/myschool.org where 'myschool.org' is your school's domain that is in your Apps email address.

For example, if your name was marie@myschool.org, your calendar address would be http://calendar.google.com/a/myschool.org.

Sometimes your school Apps domain administrator will set-up a shortcut link such as http://calendar.myschool.org – ask your school Apps domain admin for more details.
