lphsgrads.ca is a meeting place for all LPHS grads, faculty and staff, from any year.
We even encourage friends from other schools to register as guests.
Once registered you can upload your Then and Now pictures, tell us about your life, dreams and accomplishments, your kids and
grandkids, put up a link to your own website, and participate in the forums. And, of course, you can get in touch with your long lost school chums!
lphsgrads.ca also supports LPHS reunions. If you're planning a reunion for your graduating year, contact the webmaster, Alfred Ayache,
and he'll set you up.
The website was originally created to support the LPHS Class of 76's 31st Anniversary Reunion in May of 2007.
Since then it has changed its name from lphs76.a to lphsgrads.ca, and new features are added regularly.
Not at all! This website is open to anyone who was involved in Lindsay Place
High School: including students, faculty, staff and their friends and family. There's a separate registration mechanism for reunions.
Sure. We have a guest category for people who'd like to contact members of the site.
In order to prevent spam, we do have a few rules you need to follow. We require guests to provide:
- valid first and last names
- year you graduated
- valid email address (won't be published)
- valid phone number (won't be published)
- valid location (you decide whether to publish)
- an explanation of your interest in lphsgrads.ca, in the bio field (after
Let the webmaster know if there's anything we can do to help.
Your first profile is free. Every profile after that is $2,999.99. (Just kidding about the $$$) If you have problems
registering or logging on, please contact the webmaster at
Once again, has to do with the original Class of 76 reunion. We scanned in the 1976 alumni from the 1975 yearbook
(because we never got our own yearbook that year). Unfortunately,
for one reason or another, not everyone showed up in there.
If you weren't included and would like to add your profile, hit the Login
link in the menu on the left side of the page, and follow the "register here
It's probably from a mistake in the yearbook. A number of 1977 graduates
were mistakenly included in the 1976 class (as they didn't have these fancy
databases back then).
To change your graduation year, you should register by hitting the
"If you are X. XXXXX, then click here!" link in the profile.
You'll then be able to change your garduating year. If you know someone who's been miscategorized, please send an email to
and we'll adjust it.
You can replace it yourself! Simply register and upload a different
image. Keep in mind that each of your Then and Now pictures must be under 20K in size, 150 pixels in width or 300 pixels in
height. If you're not familiar with pixel sizes, simply drop by your local Kinko's or copy shop.
They'll scan your picture, crop and resize it as needed. (Make sure you mention the pixel sizes as noted above.)
For privacy reasons, we've decided not to publish contact information.
You can contact your friends through the forums. You can send an email or a Private Message.
No. We're planning on keeping this site going until at least the 50th anniversary
reunion. (Or until our webmaster quits. Whichever comes first.) In the meantime, if your handy with PHP/MySQL, HTML
One of these days we'll have a Lost Password facility. Until then, you'll need to email the webmaster at
with your User ID, and he'll send you a new password which you can change after you log in. You may want
to write down your password so you don't lose it again.
The site accommodates deceased alumni with an In Memoriam status. Each In Memoriam profile must have a steward who
takes responsibility for the information there, and answers any questions other members may send regarding the deceased.
If you're prepared to act as steward for your friend's profile, register under that profile and fill out the information you feel is
appropriate to share with the site's members. Then email your name and relation-to-the-deceased, to the webmaster at
, and he'll set the status to In Memoriam and update you as steward.
In Memoriam profiles display the steward's name and relationship to the deceased at the bottom of the page.
No problem. Give us the information you have and we'll set it up for you.
If you have contact information for the person's
family, they might want to be stewards. Someone else may want to be steward when they
see an empty steward field. All they need to do is contact the webmaster at
Please be advised that we will provide attribution as to where we obtained the information displayed.

Although most people use Internet Explorer, we've found the open source Mozilla Firefox browser to be vastly
superior, with fewer bugs and more security. Moreover, the tabbed browsing experience will
completely transform your relationship with the Internet! (No. Really!)
You can download Firefox from our good friends at Google (click the button in the right column at the
top of this page
). It comes with their highest recommendation, and a very handy toolbar they
added for you. Plus, by installing it through this link, you'll be helping to support this site.
We've used fairly leading-edge techniques to construct the LPHS website. Therefore,
you need fairly modern browsers to view the pages properly. For example, we know there's a positioning
problem in Netscape 7, but through Netscape 8 you can view the pages properly.
We developed the site using Firefox 2.0,
then tested it for compatibility with Internet Explorer 6. We highly recommend you use
Firefox 2.0 to view this website and for Internet surfing in general. In our webmaster's opinion,
there are only two legitimate uses for IE: updating Windows, and downloading Firefox. Probably not in
We've encoded all our email links in a programming
for instructions on how to turn it back on.

We appreciate all the help we can get. Plus, the more effort we put
into the reunion, the better it will turn out. So if you want to help, please contact Peter Nauth
