Back to School 2019

Many teens in Homewood and Flossmoor anxious to get their driver’s licenses will be waiting a bit longer. Due to COVID-19, Homewood-Flossmoor High School won’t offer its driver’s education program this summer.

For H-F administrators, that’s good and bad news. Good that it gives the district a bit more time to find the cars for the class. Bad in that it's going to cost more.

The Illinois State Board of Education says high school districts must make driver’s ed available to all students. It reimburses districts . . .
