Welcome SHS Classmates! Thanks for coming by! If this is your first visit, read this page to see how to get started. Make your profile on your own web page . Discover how to do it all right on this page! Share your page with your classmates, family, and friends.

GET STARTED: Look to the upper left of the page and find "Classmate Profiles." Click on it and find your name there. Click on your name and it will take you to a page that says "Join Here." Then "Click here now" and follow the instructions of adding your email and password so you can interact with your classmates. You don't have to finish it all at once. Come back whenever you want to add to or update your information, or add more photos. You can print out this page by choosing "File" from the top menu bar of your Internet connection. A "drop down" list will appear, and click on "Print" OR hold down the CONTROL key and click the letter key "p" and the print box will appear.


In order to ensure you receive important messages from our class web site, as well as messages sent directly to you from other Classmates, it's important you whitelist the email address (that's a .net, not a .com).

What is whitelisting? Whitelisting simply means you are telling your email program to accept all emails coming from our class web site and our Classmates. The technique for whitelisting varies by email program, but generally you will see the term "Whitelist", "Safe List", or "Safe Sender's List". This is where you want to be sure you have added the email address

Class Creator, the system that helps us operate our class web site, uses the address when sending out email messages. Be assured that all emails sent through our site are valid — you will not receive spam email. Whitelisting is the single most important thing you can do to ensure you don't miss anything happening on our site or miss receiving emails from your fellow Classmates.

Stop and take a moment to whitelist right now, and ensure you stay connected!

PRIVACY: All contact information you enter into your profile will be kept confidential. It will not be shared or distributed. Your contact information is private: your address and phone number can't be seen by classmates unless you grant permission on your profile. When someone clicks on your name, all they will see of your contact information is your city and state and whatever information about yourself you choose to put on your web page. Your email address is not viewable, though an email can be sent to you using the contact box at the bottom of your web page. However, if you send a message to someone through their profile, they will see your email address so they can respond.

PASSWORD PROTECT: If you choose, you can Password Protect your personal profile to block the general public and search engines from accessing your web page. When you Password Protect, only logged in classmates can see your profile. Just click in the box on your profile page when you are in edit mode.

FORGOTTEN PASSWORD: If you forget your password, click on the "Forgot Password?" retrieval feature under the login feature, and it will be emailed to you.

REMEMBER ME: If you click "Remember Me" when you log in, you will not need to log in next time you go to the site. (Don't log out - just close the window.) You can log in from computers other than your home computer but you will need to enter your password.

CHANGE OF EMAIL OR SNAIL MAIL ADDRESS: Please change your contact information when you get a new ISP or move ... we don't want to lose you. We keep our Class List current by downloading your contact information from this website.

SEND AN EMAIL TO A CLASSMATE: To email a classmate, begin by clicking on "Classmates" in the left navigation menu. A list of all classmates will come up. 1) Click on the name of the person you wish to email and that person's profile will appear. 2) Go to the bottom of the page where you will find a box titled SEND A PRIVATE MESSAGE TO (your classmate's name will be filled in as well as your name in the FROM box). 3) Type a topic in the SUBJECT box. 4) Type your message in the large box. 5) Click on SEND MESSAGE to get your email on its way. Remember: your message can be read only by the classmate you send it to, like any other email.

CHECK MESSAGES: In the left navigation panel under the header "MEMBER FUNCTIONS" click on "Message Center." This will take you to a page that lists all the emails you have received (IN BOX) and all you have sent (OUT BOX). Your messages will remain there until you delete them. A Key at the top of boththe IN BOX and OUT BOX shows symbols representing the status of an email. Each email shows:
     A box to check
     Its status
     Who sent it to you (IN BOX) or who you sent it to (OUT BOX)
     Subject and date of email
     A red "X"

In both the IN BOX and OUT BOX settings, clicking on sender's name brings up that person's profile page, and clicking on the subject brings up the actual email. Clicking inside the box on the far left or on the red "X" on the far right, will turn the bacground red. This means that the email can be deleted by choosing the tab at the bottom of the page that says "Delete Checked Thread."
