You login with the e-mail address you provided during your member account set up (include domain name, such as _____@gmail.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.  One of our website administrators will make the change and then e-mail you a temporary password.

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.

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

YOU  CHOOSE whether your "Classmate Profile" is publicly viewable on the website (e.g., by other classes, friends & teachers) or restricted to registered RVCS Classmates only. If restricted others will be blocked from accessing your Classmate Profile page. You also choose whether or not your mailing address and phone number are displayed; otherwise, only the City and State 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. This website also has extra added security thanks to Class Creator's developer, Brad Switzer per our special request. You will note that search engines are unable to pull up your contact/profile information from this website. (Rest assured, we will never use your address for anything other than RVCS Alumni events and news.)
