A TreeRing account is needed for purchasing a yearbook and creating custom pages.
You may be sent an email from TreeRing which includes an activation link. Click on the link and follow the prompts to set up your account. If you are expecting the email and do not see it, check your spam/junk folders.
If you were not emailed an activation link you will need your school's passcode to set up an account. The school passcode is provided by your school and is included on yearbook flyers which may be emailed to you or sent home with your child.

1. When you enter your school's passcode and select Confirm, on the next screen you will see the name of the school. Make sure the correct school is showing. If a different school is showing it means that you have entered an incorrect passcode. Do not continue this process for the wrong school.
When the correct school is showing, enter your first name, last name, email address, password, and select your role at the school (Student, Parent, Teacher, Administration, or Other). Click on Get Started.
