No more snow days this school year | District will go all-remote during weather-related closures

Dear Liberty families,

Each year, the district schedules snow days, which allow us to cancel school in bad weather and still ensure that our students receive 180 days of instruction, as is required by New York State Education Law.

For the 2020-21 school year we scheduled eight extra days into our calendar to allow for snow days and other unexpected closings, and on Friday, Feb. 19, we used our last one. In typical school years this would mean that the district would have to “take back” days from our scheduled breaks, like spring break or the long Memorial Day weekend.

This school year has been anything but typical, and though it has brought great challenges it has also taught us new ways to teach and to learn. In the event that Liberty school buildings must close again for inclement weather or another unforeseen circumstance, we will have an All Remote Day. This way our students will have the required instructional time and we will not have to take days away from the breaks and long weekends that we all look forward to.

We’ll notify you of Remote Days with our SchoolMessenger mass messaging system (robocall, email, and text message) the same way we notify our students, staff and community of Snow Days, Emergency Closings, and Delays. Remote Days will also be posted to the LCSD website.

SchoolMessenger uses the contact information that parents/guardians have on file with the district through SchoolTool to send you notifications. To update your contact information, please reach out the main office of your child’s school.

With Liberty Pride,

Dr. Augustine E. Tornatore,
Superintendent of Schools
