Dear Liberty Families,
February is another busy month at Liberty! We started off with Family Game Night last Friday and it was a big success! Our PTA has planned two assemblies, the Chiku Awali African Dance Group and Adam Issadore’s Path to Rhythm. Thank you to our wonderful PTA for all these events!
Our theme for this month is Collaboration. We will celebrate the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington this month. We will also be highlighting outstanding individuals as February is Black History Month. These events will occur during Morning Program and in individual classrooms.
We are looking forward to the Rockland Read In Day on February 15th. Students are invited to wear PJs or comfortable clothes as we read and calculate our minutes to submit to a county-wide contest.
School is closed February 18-February 22
Winter is upon us, so we would like to remind you that we still go outdoors for recess when the temperature and the wind chill factor are 25 degrees or above. We also consider the conditions of the playground equipment and the blacktop area in our decision. It is essential to make sure that your child dresses appropriately for school and outdoor recess. Thank you for your cooperation!
Happy Valentine’s Day,
Mrs. Ellen M. Rechenberger
Student Hours: 8:50am - 3:20pm
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.
