Elementary Music Class is Online: Visit Mr. Seger’s Google Site

Mr. Seger has updated the elementary music site with many activities to do at home.

Music can help us express many of our emotions and feelings. Today there are many different emotions that we need to express. To do this we only need our voices or some simple “instruments”.

Liberty Music Teacher Mr. Seger and Ms. Ward have updated their Music Google site to include video and suggestions for things that can be done at home while students cannot be in school.
This is a great way to focus on your creativity and continue your learning at home, and we can’t wait to see what our students think about these activities!

The great thing about art is that you can create anywhere at any time. All you need is your imagination and a few supplies you probably have at home.

Liberty Elementary Art Teacher Mrs. Euker has created LES Online Art Class, and there are great activities for her students. The media can be just about anything -pencil, crayon, watercolor, marker, whatever you have available.
This is a great way to focus on your creativity and continue your learning at home, and we can’t wait to see what our students create!

Isolation and quarantine order from the Sullivan County Manager

On April 14, an emergency order was issued by Sullivan County Manager Joshua Potosek and approved by the NYS Department of Health, to assist the Department of Public Health Services with reinforcing the importance of Isolation & Quarantine orders to help reduce community transmission of COVID-19.

Any Sullivan County resident that has been issued an Isolation or Quarantine order by Public Health Services has either has:

  • been placed on isolation due to a positive COVID-19 test, or
  • placed on quarantine if they have been determined to be a close contact (exposed) to someone who has tested positive

Given the increasing number of positive cases in Sullivan County and the increasing number of community residents on quarantine, it is imperative that we help spread the word that anyone who is on quarantine remain at home if they are under an official quarantine order until they  are notified by Public Health Services that their quarantine period is over.

Staff or students who need to pick up supplies or run errands in the community are strongly urged to wear cloth face masks while doing so.

Under no circumstances if someone is under an isolation or quarantine order should they leave their home, even to run essential errands.

Arrangements should be made for someone to pick up or drop off supplies, food, medicine, etc. even if they are still working from home.

The only exception to this guidance may be in special circumstances for health care workers or essentials workers who are asymptomatic and have been given permission to work by Public Health Services with a face mask as long as they remain symptom free. Daily monitoring of symptoms is required.

Employers of essential workers are required to provide face masks to their employees. Should there be non-compliance with essential employees wearing face masks when within 6 ft of others at work, it is suggested you create a temporary policy to make it a requirement during this time of increased community transmission.

 

Everyone counts! Don’t forget to fill out the 2020 Census

If you haven’t completed the 2020 U.S. Census, please do so soon. By participating in the Census, you help make a difference for our schools, students, and community.
 
Census data is used to help make important decisions about funding for schools and services, including health care, senior centers, roads, and political representation.
The 2020 U.S. Census can be completed online or by mail. Your responses are safe and secure.

The 2020 Census will help officials plan funding for federal nutrition programs  – including the National School Lunch Program – for the next 10 years. That’s why an accurate census is so important, and why everyone counts!

We want to hear from you! Deadline for district survey extended through April 24

The deadline for the Liberty Central School District’s DTSDE Survey has been extended through April 24.

Share your thoughts on instruction, curriculum, social-emotional learning, and more to help us prepare every student for success. Take the survey from your computer, tablet, or smartphone at https://survey.k12insight.com/r/LCSD2020Parents

The district needs to hear from everyone to make meaningful improvements. Required for Focus and Priority Schools, the survey asks about leadership and capacity, school leader practices and decisions, curriculum development and support, teacher practices and decisions, student social and emotional developmental health, and family and community engagement.

The district has administered the survey for the past three years, receiving valuable feedback from about 1,200 students, parents and teachers each time.

All responses are kept confidential and final reports share overall results, not individual responses.
