Dear Liberty Families,
Fall is in the air and we have many exciting things happening around Liberty! Thank you to all of our parents and guardians who attended “Back to School Night”. I hope you found the evening to be informative.
Our character trait for the month of October is Creativity. The week of October 8th is Fire Prevention Week. Our students in Kindergarten through Grade 2 will be visited by the Valley Cottage Fire Department to learn about fire safety.
Although our students do not wear Halloween costumes to school, we do encourage students to celebrate in their costumes on Friday, October 19th at 6pm for Trunk or Treat Halloween Celebration. Please join us!!!
Our PTA will meet on Wednesday, October 10th at 7pm. Please join us and hear about all the wonderful things being planned for your children.

Thank you for your continued support in making Liberty a learning environment where all children can be successful.
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.
