Dear Liberty School Community,
The motto of the Liberty Central School District is “A great place to learn,” and now, perhaps more than ever before, I want to reiterate our commitment to doing all that we can to live up to that simple statement.
Here, at Liberty, to be great means we must ensure that every student, from kindergarten to high school, and every single member of our staff, knows that racism in any of its ugly forms will not be tolerated. Here, in these schools, our job is not simply to educate our students, we must also protect, nurture, and empower them to be positive agents of justice and fairness. If you’ve been treated unfairly please tell me or reach out to a trusted member of our school community and I promise we will address your concerns.
The national unrest of the past week, as well as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, are difficult for adults to comprehend, and even more confusing for children. Let’s do our best to listen to and learn from one another as we work to heal and grow as a community. As always, if you need to talk to someone our counselors are always available.
There is much work to do, and we must all do our part.
With Liberty Pride,
Dr. Augustine E. Tornatore, Superintendent of Schools
