The decision to share the HOME newsletter in electronic form was not taken lightly. We see the need to make the newsletter more speedily and widely accessible to our membership, but want to do everything we can to protect the privacy of the information it contains so that members will feel free to share their homeschooling experiences with one another. To maintain privacy, the newsletter is printable in its entirety, but secured to prevent copying and pasting of portions of the text.
We ask that all our members observe some simple rules:
Current HOME members will be sent the newsletter password via our private e-mail list. If, for some reason, you have not received the password, please contact Pacia or Jenina at email@example.com so that we can send it to you. Please note that neither our e-mail list or directory will be published on our website. The membership directory will be mailed to renewing members at the beginning of each year.
Do not share your newsletter password with anyone whose name does not appear in the HOME Membership Directory. Since members join HOME on a revolving basis throughout the year, the directory sometimes does not reflect the names of all of our current members. If you have any doubt whether someone is a member, please contact Adrienne Norton or Tanya Cunningham at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm this. Redacted sample copies of the newsletter are available here. Members can feel free to refer people here.
Disrespect of this rule will terminate a member's access to the HOME newsletter.
HOME will not tolerate vendors or others seeking to obtain our membership list for marketing purposes by attempting to join the group.
Contributing to the HOME newsletter is easier than ever now that we've gone to the digital format. We welcome articles, artwork, and photographs by members of what their homeschooling looks like. It's inspiring for us to be able to read about others' unschooling experiences. Also, any resources that you would like to share with the group are welcome, as are notices about field trips and events you are organizing.
The deadline for the following month's publication is the 15th of the month.
