Beginning Friday, March 20, Homestead’s offices will be closed until further notice, and most administrative and support staff will be working remotely.  However, we realize that there may be situations that will arise that may require you or your student to meet with a staff member at school. The following are ways to connect with Homestead staff:

Need help with laptop/technical troubleshooting?

  • Check this website to see if Canvas, Google, Zoom, Turnitin, or Dreambox are having national issues. When there is something going on that is impacting students across the country, these companies post what is going wrong, what they are doing to correct the issue and announce when the issue has been resolved. Pay attention to the timestamps on these announcements and convert the time they have posted. (Add two hours to a MDT and three hours to a PDT to convert to Fort Wayne’s EDT.)
