Board of Education discussion on School Safety Board of Education discussion on School Safety Dear Parents and Community Members: Last evening the Homer Board of Education held a discussion on School Safety.  This topic is paramount on all our minds in the wake of Parkland, Florida.  Please know that we have many safety precautions in place here at Homer.  However, the best defense is if we all stand together and if you SEE or HEAR something concerning, you immediately report it to an Administrator or law enforcement.  We would much rather hear the same concern three times, as opposed to trying to investigate a concern that is six months old.  Please know that we investigate each and every concern fully.  We have a great school, great kids, great staff and a great community.  Let us be good listeners to our kids and stand together.
