A message from the Superintendent and Lemonade management on parking at LES

The LCSD and Lemonade supermarkets logo

Dear Liberty families,

When picking up or dropping off students at Liberty Elementary School, the Lemonade Grocery market parking lot is not to be used. It is also not to be used during special events.

Using the Lemonade parking lot creates a safety hazard for the children and families alike.

Lemonade has expressed interest in allowing the district to use the parking lot at no cost, with the condition that the district provides insurance. However, after speaking with our insurance company, that was not possible.

Lemonade has indicated they will do their best to warn noncustomers who park in their lot and ask them to move before towing or booting cars.

With this change, here’s how families can pick up and drop off their child moving forward:

  • At morning arrival, join the car Line from 7:35 to 8 a.m. Stop at  the child’s designated entrance and remain in your car. We’ll do the rest!
  • Avoid the morning rush by dropping off children early between the 7:15 and 7:35 a.m. each morning.
  • At afternoon dismissal, please drive onto campus beginning at 2:40 p.m. for pick up.
  • Free parking is available at the two nearby municipal lots on School Street. Limited parking can also be found on Main Street.
  • Many Liberty families are eligible for bus transportation, which is among the safest and most reliable ways to get to school. For more information, call the district office at 845-292-6171.

During special events, visitors should enter the main parking lot and attendants will guide drivers to their parking location.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work together to keep our children safe!
