Dear Liberty Families,
I hope all of you are enjoying a restful summer and are getting ready to begin a new school year. Liberty is a wonderful community where we build relationships so that our children can grow academically, socially and emotionally.
This year, our district is going paperless. A letter was sent home in June to assist you with the sign up process. Parents are asked to sign up for the Parent Portal on Infinite Campus. Beginning August 23, families who have signed up will be able to obtain their child’s teacher’s name and class information. Report cards, flyers and other information will be sent through this online account throughout the school year. Please sign up if you haven’t done so by going to www.nyackschools.org and go to the Liberty link.
If you are having difficulty, please contact Marie Prats at 353-7033 until 8/25 or Yesenia Polanco at 353-7042 during the week of 8/28.
School supply lists are on the Liberty website by grade. If you have difficulty obtaining supplies for your child, please contact the school.
Our first day of school for ALL students is Tuesday, September 5th. It is a FULL DAY for ALL students K-5. Students in grades 1-5 should report to the Gym upon arriving at school. Kindergarten students will meet outside their classroom upon arriving. If your child is a bus rider, they will be escorted by an adult to the proper location for their grade level. We will be hosting a “Tea and Tissues” for our Kindergarten parents in the cafeteria. Your child will be assigned a bus pickup time and drop off time. Please arrive at your child’s stop ten minutes prior. Kindergarten students must be met at the bus stop by an adult. In the beginning of the year, it is difficult to quote exact times until bus routes are established so we appreciate your patience. The instructional day begins at 8:50 and ends at 3:20. For parents that need an earlier drop off, supervision begins at 8am. Please do not drop off your child before that time.
Dismissal begins at 3:15 with our walkers. The buses are then called as they arrive and car riders are dismissed at 3:30. If you are picking your child up as a walker, please meet them by the flag pole in front of the main entrance. Car riders will be brought out to their parents’ car in the traffic circle. There is no need for you to park your car. Staff will be available to assist with our dismissal procedures.
We look forward to seeing our Liberty students on Tuesday, September 5th.
Mrs. Ellen M. Rechenberger
