 The purpose of the class website is to provide one location for our classmates to obtain information about the Hialeah High School Class of 1964. Upcoming class events will both be posted on the site as well as emailed to those who provide their contact information.  A major feature of the website, one that many will appreciate, is that it allows, but does not require, classmates to include information that would permit one classmate to contact another.  Each time you return to our class website, we hope you will find something new and interesting…things to keep you wanting to come back again and again. Also, if you find any errors please do not hesitate to let us know about them.

Everything you need to know about setting up a profile to gain access to the rest of our website page should be contained on this page. If you have questions or comments, please click on the "Contact Us" tab at the top of the page and send us a message. Your message will go to your website administrators: Vince Rusinak, Sergio Siller and Nancy Berthiaume Rusinak.

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,, understands the importance of your privacy. They have assured us that your personal information will never be sold to other sites, shared or distributed.

Your contact information is private. Your street address, e-mail address, and phone number cannot be seen by anyone other than your website administrators. 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. We highly suggest that you limit the visibility of your profile!!!  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. Please note that if you do not click on the box to limit your Profile Visibility (some don't realize what the box is for when they are filling out their profiles), your administrators will do it for you. If it is done properly, you will see a padlock to the right of your name prior to logging in to the website (if you are logged in, you will not see the padlock).

Finding your class web site Profile pages by searching Google or other major search engines:

If you are signed on to the site and restricted your profile to only fellow classmates, and then use a search engine to see if the privacy options above are working, it will appear they are NOT. This is only because you are signed into the site. Sign out and check again. You will see that none of your profile information is viewable by non members.

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 to your email account as a safe sender in order to ensure you receive email communications from us.

If you want your name removed from this website: Please just let us know that you want your name removed from the website by clicking on the "Contact Us" tab above and send us a message telling us to remove your name.

In order to access the pages that are password protected on this site, you must set up a profile by providing, as a minimum, your email address and a password.

To set up your profile, click on the "Classmate Profiles" link. 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 Hialeah High School's Class of 1964 (click on tab "Who is a HHS 1964 Classmate" to see if you qualify). If so, contact us and tell us when you attended. If you qualify, your name will be added.

Updates: If you change your email address, snail mail address, or phone number, please update your Contact Information so we have up-to-date information and you do not miss out on important announcements regarding classmates or upcoming events.


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 us. The administrators check the site often, but are not present 24/7/365. A response might take a while, so please be patient.

The site assembles a missing list for us, based solely on the names of people who don't have profiles; so until you have established 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 not listed, please contact us.



Return to Menu

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.

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! :)

Filling in the photo slots at the top of your Profile:

  • Click "Edit Profile" under MEMBER FUNCTIONS.
  • Roll your cursor over the Master Photo, Then, Now, or Yearbook photo silhouette (note you cannot upload a yearbook photo if one has already been provided)
  • Click "Select Photo" displayed in the upper right corner of photo, then click the "Upload a New Photo" button.
  • Select the desired photo from your hard drive. Before you upload the photo, make sure you have compressed the photo for web pages/emails to less than 50KB...if at all possible. You will then be given an opportunity to crop the photo for a perfect fit.

Adding large "Profile Gallery Images" to your Profile:

  • Clicked "Edit Profile" under MEMBER FUNCTIONS.
  • Click the photo tab in the upper right corner of your Profile.
  • You will see any images previously uploaded here. Click the "Upload a New Photo" button to add more. Before you upload the photo, make sure you have compressed the photo for web pages/emails to less than 50KB...if at all possible.
  • Click to select images you wish to display on your Profile. All images with a green check mark will display. Click again to not display, and the green check mark will disappear.
  • To add a caption under your images, roll over any image and select "Edit Details". Enter your caption and press save.
  • You can adjust the display order of your photos by simply dragging and dropping them into the positions of your choosing.
