Nyack SUPERHERO SPIRIT WEEK - OCT. 26th - 30th
'YOU ARE YOUR OWN SUPERHERO" - presented by: Elementary Guidance Dept.
Dear Liberty Families,
Fall is in the air and we continue to be LIBERTY STRONG! Our students and staff are settling into our new world of learning. If your child is absent, please remember to call the school. Please let us know if you are experiencing any technology issues so we can assist you.
I am very proud of our students. They are following the guidelines that we now have in place to keep us all safe and healthy. Thank you for all your support and understanding as our teachers and staff teach our students and work with their families. Our character trait for the month of October is Creativity and their creativity is shining through!
Dr. Montesano is retiring in June, 2021. The district is interested in your feedback as we begin a search for a new Superintendent. Please complete the survey on the district website. Thank you!

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: 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.
