Secondary students in the Hospital Homebound Program are assigned a Homeroom Teacher who provides information and instruction regarding program information. The Homeroom Teachers contact families to make arrangements for an initial home visit with the student and their parent or guardian. Each Homeroom Teacher works primarily with students within a geographic region of Pinellas County.

Aside from assisting with completion and submission of required paperwork, a goal of the Homeroom Teacher is to welcome families to the Hospital/Homebound Program and to help students to be successful. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions or concerns!
Although the initial visit from the Homeroom Teacher is often a student's starting point, there is no need to wait for the visit! As soon as a student or parent has received their schedule, they should contact their class teachers, attend a Virtual Orientation session, and begin attending virtual classes.
