Dear Members,

Below are the instructions on how to use the “onedrive” website to upload pictures that you have taken throughout the school year for yearbook purposes.

Please remember:

  1. DO NOT share this hotmail ID and password with anyone else who is NOT REGISTERED with tot lot. This setup is purely for the convenience of year book committee to complete the year book project.
  2. Make sure you create a folder with your name on it (or your child’s first name) so that we know who is it from, and it will help better organize the yearbook page in the future.

If you encounter any technical issue, please contact Suri. Thank you!!
