    Parents and Guardians: the District has a NEW Media Release/Opt Out protocol that will go into effect this month, October, 2016.  All parents/guardians should have received the attached letter in their summer mailing  that  included  a September 26th deadline for any "Opt Outs".   Parents/guardians who do not wish their child's photograph to be featured on our new websites must have checked the appropriate boxes on this form and have sent it back to their child's school.  Please call the District's Office of Public Relations at (845) 353-7013 with any questions regarding this new protocol.  The Media Opt Out Form is one that can be filled out at any time but must be kept at the school building level for easy access by staff and to ensure that the protocol  is effectively followed.

Message from the Principal : Mrs. Ellen Rechenberger


 Dear Liberty Families,

December is an exciting month at Liberty! We have celebrated some of our Liberty "STAR" students and staff members at Morning Program for their "Acts of Stardom". We are very proud of them. We will continue to honor our Liberty STARs every month.

Our students have already shown how much they care by donating food and pajamas during the past few weeks. Our "Pajama Day" at Liberty was a huge success! We collected 125 pairs of pajamas for People to People. Thank you to Mr. Nick Grasso for coordinating this wonderful community project. Liberty's generosity did not stop there. Our students collected food to be given to families in need during this holiday season. Thank you for your generosity. Great  job Liberty families!!!

On Tuesday, December 20th, we will be having our Grades 1 & 2 Winter Concert at 9:30am at Liberty. Our Kindergarten Winter Concert be will be on Thursday, December 22nd at 9:15am. The Winter Concert for Grades 3-5 will be on January 12th at 7pm at Nyack HS. Please join us!

Just a reminder, students should not bring cell phones, electronics or video games from home. These items can be distracting to instruction and are costly if they are lost. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please check our "Lost and Found" if your child has lost clothing. Our collection is growing!

Parent-teacher Conferences will be held in the afternoons of December 6th and 13th and on the evening of Thursday, December 8th. On the days of the afternoon conferences, the students will be dismissed at 11:45. The Nyack Center and         Y-program will be closed on the early dismissal days so please make sure your child knows their dismissal plan.

School will be closed December 26-January 2nd. School reopens on January 3rd! I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our Liberty families a happy and healthy holiday season. It is truly a gift to work with your children each day.

Best wishes for the New Year!


Mrs. Ellen Rechenberger
