I'm New Here


If you are new to the website please read this page as it will answer all of your questions on how to get a password, make a profile and how to use the website.

To gain access to all of the features of this website, you will need to register and create your own personal password.  It's easy, free and secure.  You have the option of password protecting your personal profile which blocks the general public and search engines from accessing your profile details.  Once you create a profile, you will also be able to see the profiles of your fellow classmates and interact with them. 

All contact information that you enter into this website 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 the 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 that they can respond.

You will need to make your individual profile in order to access any password protected pages on the site.  Start by clicking on Classmate Profiles.  Find your name and click on it.  Follow the prompts to create your profile.  The password that you enter during this process will be used as your login password.  You can personalize your page with information and photos.

Always check back with the Home page, where main information and announcements are made. Enjoy and have fun with the website!


This is my first visit to the website.  How do I login?

Please click on "Classmate Profiles", then click on YOUR NAME to set up a FREE member account.  Provide your work or home e-mail address, select a password (which you can change at any time), and tell us about your life since high school.  Add your married name, if applicable, photos, etc.

I forgot my login information and/or password.  What should I do?

You login with the e-mail address you provided during your member account set up (include domain name, such as @hotmail.com).  If you have several e-mail addresses and cannot remember which one you used or if you no longer have access to that e-mail address, click on "Contact Us" and provide your new e-mail address.  Your website administrator will make the change and then e-mail you a temporary password.  Once you've logged in using your new e-mail address and temporary password, change your password by clicking the "Change Your Password" link under the Member Functions menu on the home page.

If you remember your e-mail address but you forgot your password, click on the "Forgot password?" link right above the green "Log On" button, and the website will automatically e-mail your password to you within a few minutes. 

Who has access to my "Classmate Profile" and personal contact information?

You can choose whether your "Classmate Profile" is publicly viewable on the website (e.g., by other classes, friends, and the general public) or restricted to registered Jonathan Dayton Regional High School Class of 1989 Classmates only.  If restricted, search engines and the general public will be blocked from accessing your Classmate Profile page.  You can also choose whether or not your mailing address and phone number are displayed; otherwise, only the City and State/Country where you live will be listed.  Click on the "Edit Your Profile" link under the Member Functions menu in the side column, then scroll down to the bottom of the page to make your choice. 

Can I be notified if other Classmates update their "Classmate Profile"?

YES!  Click on "Classmate Profiles", then click on the name of the Classmate you'd like to keep track of.  Once he/she has registered, his/her profile will be displayed.  Scroll down to the bottom of his/her profile page, click on the box that says "Notify me whenever [Classmate's] profile is updated", and click on the "Notify Me" button.  You will be notified by e-mail. 

Does the public or other Classmates have access to my e-mail address?

No.  To protect your privacy, your work or home e-mail address is stored only within the website, so Classmates can send you a message.  You can decide who you want to provide your own e-mail address to.  To check if you've received any new messages, click on the "Message Area" under the Member Functions menu in the side column. 

Can I post my own photos or videos on the website?

Yes!  You can upload a current photo of yourself, your family, pets, vacations, old photos from days gone by, etc. -- anything you want to share -- by clicking on "Edit/Upload Photos" under the Member Functions menu on the left.  There is no limit on the number of digital photos that you can store on your "Classmate Profile" page.  Each photo is automatically resized to fit on your Profile page.  You can also upload your own videos that you've posted to YouTube.com by clicking on the "Classmate Profiles" link, then following the instructions.  And yes, you can add, delete or replace your own photos or videos at any time.

How does the "Message Forum" work?

Click on "Message Forum" above and you can chat with our fellow classmates when they login and read the "Message Forum".  Post a response to a prior message or start your own topic of conversation by asking a question, re-living an old memory, or share your thoughts on life.
