Hidden User

Is there a way to hide a user in 10.3.4? I am setting up laptops with an admin account that I don't want users to see in the login window or in the user folder. I'm looking to hide the account the way that root is hidden from a basic user. I've tried changing the UID through Netinfo Manager, but it doesn't appear to have worked. Have I perhaps missed a step?

Thanks. :alien:
