• It is with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of our NEW Director of Technology & Innovation, Darleen Nicolosi...

    Please read the letter from our Superintendent, James Montesano, regarding this new position, created as part of the District's 5-Year Technology Plan and filled by Ms. Darleen Nicolosi.

    "Globalization and technology have changed the way we live and learn, and schools need to emphasize the knowledge and skills that are necessary for success in the 21st century."

  • Welcome Back to School!

    Join us in partnership as we kick off a new school year and prepare all students to be "Future-Ready".  With a shared vision developed with YOU - our community -  we are focused on seven core competencies representing our Profile of a Nyack Graduate: Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, Compassion, Cultural Competence, Content Mastery.

    "In our schools, we are committed to the belief that all students possess great natural abilities. At the most fundamental level, the focus on education has to be on creating conditions in which students will want and be able to learn.  When children are encouraged to be curious and explore, the learning process opens up to new possibilities."    - James Montesano, Superintendent of Schools

    Together, we are building bridges for today's students to cross into tomorrow's world with equity, innovation and optimism.

Message from the Principal : Mrs. Ellen Rechenberger





September, 2017

Dear Liberty Families,

We have had a great beginning to the 2017-2018 school year!  Thank you for helping make it a smooth start. We are enjoying your children so much.

We are happy to welcome to our Liberty family, Mrs. Justine Ciorra (Library Media Specialist), Ms. Paige Hirsch (Grade 5 Special Ed teacher) and Ms. Christa Benoit (Teaching Assistant - 3).

Our instructional day begins at 8:50 and ends at 3:15. If you need to drop off your child in the morning, please note that there is supervision beginning at 8am. Walkers exit the building in the afternoon at 3:15, followed by bus riders as the buses arrive. At 3:30, our car riders are escorted out of the building by staff.  Please pull up next to the curb and your child will be brought to yur vehicle. It is not necessary for you to park your car as we need to serve as many cars as possible in a short period of time. Thank you for helping keep your children safe at all times.

***If you have a change of dismissal plans for your child, please send a note to your child's teacher. Please do not leave these kinds of messages on voicemail or use email. The office will accept messages in case of sudden emergencies.

It is very important if you change your address or phone numbers to alert the school office.  In the event of illness or an early dismissal, we must be able to contact you. We appreciate your cooperation with this.

We also ask parents or guardians to call our school nurse, Mrs. Kathleen Fredericks if your child is absent.  Her direct phone number is 353-7250.

We look forward to seeing you at Back to School Night on Thursday, September 28th from 7:00 to 8:30pm.


Sincerely yours,

Mrs. Ellen M. Rechenberger
