1. THE PURPOSE OF THIS WEBSITE
This is a private site for the members of the Framingham North High School class of 1969 and their guests.
MISSION STATEMENT: The goal for this website is to share information regarding our upcoming FNHS '69 Fiftieth Reunion celebration. We hope to bring our classmates closer together, in a respectful manner, to build community among those who have shared a significant milestone in life.
In keeping with our mission statement, we reserve the right to take down photos, comments or other material that is deemed to be "unproductive."** Our guidelines are simple: (with a shout-out to Converse.com).
BE NICE TO PEOPLE:
We learned about this in kindergarten. Same thing here. It’s important--and it’s the only way this thing will work.
KEEP IT CLEAN:
If you wouldn’t show it to your mother (or Mr. Hart, Miss Diggs or Mr. Dell'Olio) please don’t share it with us.
We’re made up of all sorts of experiences and so are you.... And we're a long way from being those teen-aged people we see in the funny yearbook photos! Let’s share some of those things here. It’ll be way more interesting, and lots more fun.
If you have questions or concerns regarding content, please contact our Website Administrator. [ Website Admin]
With gratitude for your participation and interest,
Your Reunion Committee
**Please note that inappropriate posts or photos, offensive language and/or personal attacks will be deleted and the person who made the post will be contacted individually and given a warning. A second inappropriate post after a warning will result in losing access to the Class Reunion Website. Info regarding the reunion would continue to be communicated via email.
2. PRIVACY NOTICE
All contact information (address, phone number, e-mail address) that you enter into this website will be kept confidential. The host of this web site, ClassCreator.com, is a locally-owned business. They understand the importance of your privacy. Your personal information will never be sold to other sites. It will not be shared or distributed.
Your contact information is private; your street address, e-mail address, and phone number cannot be seen by classmates. Each classmate has the ability to limit the visibility of his or her profile to only fellow classmates by clicking on the appropriate answer in the Profile Visibility section during profile setup. If you do not opt for privacy on this line your profile can be viewed by non members such as your friends or family, but also note your profile will be fully indexable by major search engines.
Finding your class web site Profile pages by searching Google or other major search engines:
Emails may be shared within this site using the contact option at the top of each classmate's profile page (just look under the classmate's main photo in the upper left). This way you will be able to contact classmates without sharing your private email address, unless you choose to do so.
All class Email news sent from us to you via this web site: For those of you with spam blocking or email filtering capabilities, please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email account as a safe sender in order to ensure you receive email communications from us.
Please note that if you do not want your name and picture on this site it may be removed by contacting Bill Tuffs. This will end all communications to you from the Framingham North High School Class of 1969, unless you ask that special arrangements be made.
3. SETTING UP YOUR PROFILE
In order to access the pages that are password protected on this site, you must set up a profile by providing a minimum of your email address, and a password.
To set up your profile: locate the "Classmate Profiles" link and locate your name and click on it. Follow the prompts to create your profile.
Private information like your email address, home address, and phone numbers will not be visible to fellow classmates. We collect mailing addresses in the event that we need to contact you by snail mail or phone. Your information will never be given to other classmates without your permission.
We encourage you to add a current picture to your profile as a master photo. This photo will be displayed in various areas around the site. It's also helpful to upload an additional "Now" photo, and a "Then" photo. Classmates will enjoy seeing how you've changed!
If your name is not already on the site, but you were part of the Framingham North High School Class of 1969, contact us and your name will be added.
Updates: If you change your email address, snail mail address, or phone number, please update your Contact Info so we have up to date information. That way you'll always be in the know about what your classmates are up to!
Choosing a password: Passwords do not need to be the high security style recommended for some sites. Choose something simple that you are certain you will remember. Clicking the "Remember Me" will allow you to bypass entering the password each time you visit, but eventually the "remember me" will fail (for instance when you get a new computer). Please make note of your password!
If you forget your password simply click on "forgot password". If you have several email accounts, and you don't remember the one you used to set-up your account, contact Bill Tuffs. This could take a while so please be patient.
4. "MISSING" CLASSMATES
The wonderful part about this site is that it came pre-setup by Class Creator. I just had to enter names. The site assembles a missing list for us, based solely on the names of people who don't have profiles; so until you have a profile, the site will consider you "missing".
Also, please note: We need your help to contact EVERY classmate. If you have information about any classmate, listed or not listed, please contact Bill Tuffs
5. COMMUNICATING WITH CLASSMATES
To contact a fellow classmate, you may simply use the email option at the top left of each Classmate's Profile page (located under Master Photo). This feature will allow open communication between Classmates, while protecting your personal information. If you wish to share your email address or other personal information within a message written on our site, the site will not block you from doing so.
6. ADDING PICTURES TO YOUR PROFILE
Adding current pictures is not a requirement to participate on the site, but it certainly is a nice way to get to know people again. We've had reports of classmates who were routinely running into each other without knowing it, because...well....we've all changed a little over the years! :)
