Adding a home page tablet ensures that a visitor's primary attention is focused on one page of information. This means that important events, assignments, activities, etc. will not be overlooked when visitors view your Slate or Teacher page.
You can assign one of your Tablets to be the "Home Page" on your Slate or Teacher Page.  Doing so will present the information of that Tablet above the others, regardless of where it is in the list.
