Some tips to try:

  • Ensure your username is the email address you use for Arbor.  Ask us to check the email address linked to your account.
  • Reset your password from the login page, or ask us to do this.
  • If the login email was sent to you more than 95 hours ago, the password link will have expired.  Ask us to send it again.
  • Ask the school office to check that your email address has not been used twice – e.g. On another guardian or child’s profile.
  • Enter the birthday of one of your children to log in for the first time.
