As an instructor, you can publish or unpublish a page in a course. Unpublished content is invisible to students.
Note: If you use Modules in your course and add a Page to a Module, please be aware that the state of the Module overrides the state of all module items. You may want to consider leaving Pages unpublished until you are ready to publish the entire Module. For more information please see the Modules Draft State lesson.
