Dear Liberty Families,
We have had a great beginning to the 2018-2019 school year. Thank you for helping make it a smooth start. We are enjoying your children so much!
I would like to share with you a few reminders about arrival and dismissal. Our instructional day begins at 8:50. If your child arrives after 8:50, they should stop as the office for a late pass. We begin dismissal at 3:15. Walkers are dismissed first and then we dismiss our bus riders as the buses arrive. The students are escorted to their buses by a staff member. At 3:25, our car riders are escorted out to sidewalk by the large traffic circle. Please follow the directions of Mr. Brian Gallagher, our Security Guard. You can pull up to the curb, your child will be brought to your car by a staff member. It is not necessary to park 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 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 27th from 7:00-8:30pm. We are looking forward to a wonderful year!!!
Mrs. Ellen M. Rechenberger
Student Hours: 8:50am - 3:20pm

For everyone’s safety, these students will be dismissed when the buses have left the school grounds, which is approximately 3:25.
