Message from the Principal : Mrs. Ellen Rechenberger
Dear Liberty Families,
We are all anxiously waiting for Spring! We hope that all of our Liberty families enjoyed the winter break. We celebrated our 100th day of school. All of our students are 100 days smarter!
Liberty students participated in the Rockland Read-In on February 15. Our students enjoyed a relaxing day wearing comfortable clothes and reading their favorite books. Many district and community members joined in the fun by reading to classes. As a school, our students read 73,617 minutes. Congratulations to our students for a job well done.
Thank you to our PTA parents for the Jump-a-thon and our Book Fair. Also, thank you for LEAP Learner classes that took place during January and February. A lot of hard work goes into these events in support of our students and staff.Our Lost and Found baskets are filling up. Please check the items in the baskets if your child is missing items when you visit for the building. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: No school for students on Friday, March 22
Thank you as always for all your cooperation and support in your child’s education.
Mrs. Ellen M. Rechenberger

LIBERTY’S IMPORTANT REMINDERS
SCHOOL BEGINS: School will begin for Grades K-5 on Wednesday September 5th. Classes begin promptly at 8:50 and dismissal begins at 3:15. It will be a full day for all K-5 students. Kindergarteners should go to their classroom and students in Grades 1-5 should go to the Gym upon arriving at school. Students who arrive after 8:50 must stop at the office for a late pass. Please make every effort to make sure your child arrives on time.ATTENDANCE: If your child is ill and cannot attend school, please call Mrs. Fredericks (our nurse) at 353-7250 and leave a message. Please leave your child’s full name, class and reason for the absence. When your child returns to school, a written note is required.
BREAKFAST/LUNCH: Breakfast is available for students each morning from 8:20 to 8:45 and costs $1.00. Those students should report to the cafeteria upon arrival. Lunch is available each day for students to purchase and the cost is $2.35. A menu will be sent home the beginning of each month and is on the website. Meal accounts can be prepaid weekly or monthly for your convenience through MyPaymentPlus.com (online payment plan).
DISMISSAL: For the safety of children, parents and staff, please follow our dismissal guidelines. Dismissal will begin at 3:15 each day.
WALKERS: These students will be called to be dismissed. If you are accompanying your child home, please wait by the flag pole at the main entrance.
BUS RIDERS: Bus numbers will be announced as the bus arrives. When the bus arrives, an adult will escort the children to the bus circle. Kindergarteners will be assigned “bus buddies” by their teachers to help them with bus procedures. An adult must be at the bus stop to meet Kindergarten students.
CAR RIDERS: Students whose parents will be picking them up by car will meet in the Gym. For everyone’s safety, these students will be dismissed when the buses have left the school grounds, which is approximately 3:25. Drivers should remain in their vehicles and pull up to the curb in the circle and their child will be escorted to the vehicle. Please do not park in the circle.
**** If your child has a change in dismissal plans, a note must be sent to the classroom teacher who will alert the office. It would be appreciated if phone calls were not made for this purpose unless of an emergency.
