The Phoenix Feather
Homer Flex High School - Week of August 15, 2022
Welcome Back to a New Year at Homer Flex!
Flex Digital Citizenship
As we return to our classrooms after so much time spent with online learning, the staff here at Flex have noticed a significant increase in distracted cell phone and technology use by our students. Part of our mission here at the school is to help students learn to live "adult lives," and with that comes the responsibility to act responsibly, especially with technology. Teaching students when it is appropriate to be use cell phones and be on non-educational content is the first step in this process. We are implementing new strategies to address this situation in our classrooms, and plan to employ community circles to facilitate discussions between students and staff. We realize that cell phone use, especially text messages, have become part of everyday life, and we hope to help students learn when and where it's appropriate to check them. You can help your student while they are in class by calling the office to leave messages and as a way to contact them in case of emergencies. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns, and thank you for your support!
Online Student Forms
We have received a handful of the Student Forms from parents/guardians. Thank you to those who have filled them out! It is important that all parents/guardians complete these online forms for their student for the 2022-2023 school year.
