Can I hide the home "Following" feed from students?

There are some things on the home feed that are not school-appropriate at times. Is there a way that I can disable the home “Following” feed from being a distraction or temptation for students?

For example, there is currently a shooter game on the feed called “Gatdamn.io.” I do not care in principle if it is on the feed as I think students need to learn digital citizenship skills, but my IT department will very possibly disagree. I do not want for all students to lose access because of a couple of students’ inability to follow directions.

Thank you!

Make the students use Firewalled Replit.

It’s essentially the same as main site Replit except the Community feature does not exist + most URLs cannot be fetched from a Repl (which also helps eliminate proxies/unblockers).

An issue with this however is that some browsers are thinking it’s malicious (which it isn’t), so if your school system blocks that then that probably won’t work.
