The “act of God” winter freeze in Texas had a direct impact on the cost that Homewood-Flossmoor High School paid for natural gas.

The district’s winter gas bill would normally be $30,000 but this year it was $280,000 due to a spike in the gas commodity prices when about a third of the natural gas supply in Texas was lost to the freeze, said Lawrence Cook, District 233 business manager, at the April 6 board meeting.

Homewood-Flossmoor High School will have a graduation and an event for seniors, but COVID-19 regulations mean neither will look like the traditional events of past years.

When members of the senior class petitioned in February for a graduation ceremony and something that would resemble the prom, administrators said they were working on plans. 

Nothing is final, Principal Jerry Anderson said during the school board’s Planning Committee meeting Thursday, March 18.
