The Liberty Central School Music Department is proud to announce that four students participated in the Zone 9 Area- All State music festival at Suffern High School on November 22 and 23

Selections were based on the solo evaluation results last spring and teacher recommendations. The Area- All State festival is comprised of the top student musicians from Greene, Orange, Rockland, Sullivan, Orange and Ulster Counties.

Congratulations to Tyler Black & George Lopez who performed in the Mixed Chorus. Christopher Bayer performed with the Band and Kylie Flynn with  the Orchestra.

Tyler Black was selected as an alternate for the 2019 All-State Mixed Chorus. Tyler’s score of 99 on his solo evaluation last spring garnered him this prestigious honor. 

 “These students represent the highest quality of musicianship and exceed expectations. To be recognized by the New York State School of Music Association (NYSSMA) for such a distinguished level of accomplishment is remarkable and well deserved” according to Tim Hamblin, Director of Music at The Liberty Central School District

Electronic “threat” deemed unfounded

On Thursday, Nov. 14,  at approximately 2 p.m., students reported that a classmate used an electronic device during class to threaten harm to others.

The students immediately reported the incident to the teacher and an investigation by administration and Liberty Police followed.  Police, after interviewing the student, the student’s parents, and witnesses, determined the threat to be non-credible. Additionally,  police confirmed that the student has no access to weapons.

The student admitted making the threat but insisted it was a joke and there was no intent or desire to harm anyone. The student will still face disciplinary consequences as outlined in the district’s Code of Conduct.

The safety and security of our students and staff is paramount. Students acted quickly and staff responded appropriately, notifying police and administration immediately. Teachers also took time today to discuss the matter with their students.
