Water jugs available during town hydrant shut down

Earlier this morning, the Town of Liberty Water Department notified district officials that the Town would be closing various water hydrants while they repaired a leak. As a result, water from the fountains in the Liberty Middle and High School is showing some discoloration.

Plastic water jugs and cups have been placed throughout the high school hallways for student and staff use while the Town repairs the leak. Water jugs will also be brought to the elementary and middle school if needed. The district will continue to monitor the water at the elementary, middle and high school to check for discoloration.

Liberty Middle School hosts successful lockdown drill

At the Liberty Central School District, safety drills are an important first step in keeping our schools, students, and staff safe. Safety drills allow administrators, staff and students to mitigate, prepare for and recover from a variety of incidents. We want our families to have a better understanding of the different drills we practice throughout the year so that they feel more prepared. Click here for guidance on the types of safety drills that occur within our schools.

On Dec. 20, the Liberty Middle School successfully conducted a lockdown drill. School officials are happy to report that the drill went smoothly and congratulations are in order for our students and staff. The drill lasted approximately twenty minutes, from 1:45 p.m. to 2:02 p.m.

The school district’s lockdown protocols were developed with the guidance and assistance of the district’s safety committee and Village of Liberty Police Department. We believe they deserve a special thanks for their continued support and presence in our building. Our goals, at all times, are to protect the safety of our students and staff, to keep parents and guardians informed, and to prevent any unnecessary anxiety.

We encourage parents and guardians to review this information with their child on occasion and/or use this as an opportunity to discuss your family’s personal emergency plan (i.e: who to contact if an emergency outside of school occurs, etc.) If you have any questions about the drill, please call the middle school’s main office at  (845) 292-5400 ext. 2300.

LES and LHS receive indoor growing station

The Liberty Central School District is one of five Sullivan County schools that has been awarded a Healthy Community Initiatives Grant through Sullivan Renaissance to participate in a pilot program that “brings the outside in.”

Earlier last month, our elementary and high school received a GrowLab LED indoor growing station, seed starter kit, along with curriculum and activity books from Gardener’s Supply Company of Vermont.

High school teacher Mr. Kevin Ferguson recently completed a “trial run” using the growing station. He and his students successfully grew a large batch of pea shoots.

The pea shoots were grown without any fertilizer, chemicals or additives. Even better, they are going to be served at the school’s salad bar.

There will be a bus evacuation drill on Dec. 19

On Wednesday, Dec. 19, our bus drivers will hold an evacuation drill during afternoon dismissal. The drill will take place at the high school and should only last a few minutes.  All students will be asked to exit the bus through the front and line up on the sidewalk until they are asked to re-enter. We’d like all parents and guardians to be aware just in case their child(ren) arrive a few minutes late to their bus stop on Dec. 19.

Making spirits bright: 29 families served at toy drive

Nothing embodies the holiday spirit at Liberty Elementary School more than seeing children get toys that may be the only gifts they receive this winter.

As it does each year, the teachers and staff at Liberty are stepping forward, one toy at a time, to make sure each child in need has at least one toy to unwrap.

During its holiday toy drive on Dec. 4, the teachers and staff at Liberty Elementary School helped put new quality toys under the tree for nearly 30 families.

The elementary school will continue to collect new and unwrapped toys for children through Dec. 14.  Toys can be left with a child’s teacher or at the main office of the elementary school.
