ClassLink FAQs

My account is locked. What do I do?

An account gets locked after too many failed login attempts. If this happens, alert your teacher and  verify your username and password.

I’m getting “Access Denied” or “Account not connected” when trying to sign in with Google. Why?

When clicking the Sign In With Google button in ClassLink, Google is signing in with an active Google account, a personal account that does not have access to ClassLink. Make sure to log out of Google. You may go to https://accounts.google.com/Logout to log out of Google. Then go back to your ClassLink login page to log back in. This time, you will be prompted to input your school-issued Google username and password.

I’m getting “HTTP error 400, Request Header is too long.” What do I do?

Clear your browser cookies and cache. Next close and reopen your browser and try logging back in.

My webcam isn’t loading. Why?

Most modern web browsers support WebRTC, which supports easy access to a webcam from web page scripts. However, Safari (on Mac) does not support WebRTC. Install the Google Chrome browser on your Mac.

What is the username and password for an app I clicked on?

If you are prompted for a username and password after clicking an app and you are unaware of your username and password for that app, the best option is to contact your teacher or Liberty’s technology department.

What is my Google Classroom or Teams Class Code?

Google Classroom classes are created and managed by the teacher. Please contact your teacher for the class code. If you are going to Classroom.google.com directly (outside of ClassLink) and it’s trying to log in to a different account, go to https://accounts.google.com to check other active accounts, log out of Google then login with your school Google account.

The ClassLink LaunchPad Extension on Safari is disabled. What do I do?

  • After you install the ClassLink LaunchPad Extension for the Safari browser, go into the Safari Preferences menu and click on Extensions.
  • Enable the extension by clicking on the checkbox to the left. See the screenshot below.

What if I still need help?

If you have questions or need assistance,  contact Liberty’s tech support team or email the ClassLink helpdesk.

From the Superintendent | An update about the 2021-22 school year

Dear Liberty families:

As we reach the halfway point of summer, I realize that many of you are wondering what the new school year will look like. 

The Liberty Central School District is planning for a full return to school in September. However, we continue to wait for guidance from the NYS Department of Health regarding the protocols we must follow, such as mask wearing, health screening and social distancing. This information is critical to our planning. 

The NYS Department of Education assures us that this guidance, which will follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control, is in development. Once we receive this guidance we will be able to formulate a detailed, realistic plan for the 2021-22 school year. I am hopeful that the guidance will be released soon, and, as always, I will keep you updated and informed.

Health and education experts agree that students learn best in school with their teachers and peers, and the common goal is to bring students back into classrooms for in-person learning. Everyone’s health and safety will be at the core of our decisions as we continue to navigate the effects of COVID-19, its variants, and evolving information about how to prevent its transmission.

In the coming weeks you’ll receive information specific to your students’ individual building and the new school year. Your input is important to me, so please email your questions and concerns to Questions@LibertyK12.org.

As we wait for guidance I thank you for your patience, and I look forward to safely welcoming everyone back to Liberty schools in September.

Sincerely,

Dr. Patrick Sullivan
Superintendent

What families need to know about the Advance Child Tax Credit

The Advance Child Tax Credit, part of the American Rescue Plan, provides the largest Child Tax Credit to most working families. If you have filed tax returns for 2019 or 2020 or signed up with the Non-Filer tool last year to receive a stimulus check from the Internal Revenue Service, you will automatically get the monthly Child Tax Credit.

Starting July 15, montly payments will automatically be made of $250 per child between 6-17 years old or $300 per child under 6 years old. All working families will get the full credit if they make up to $150,000 for a couple or $112,500 for a family with a single parent head of household. Payments will continue until Dec. 31, 2021.

Low-income families with children are eligible, including those who have not made enough money to be required to file taxes and those who have not filed taxes in a while.

If you have not already signed up or have not filed taxes in a while, you can still sign up to get the Child Tax Credit without losing your benefits. You are also eligible to apply for the Recovery Rebate Credit, also known as stimulus payments, as part of this process. These payments do not count as income for any family. (Signing up will not affect your eligibility for other federal benefits like SSI, SNAP, TANF, and WIC.)

If you have at least one qualifying child and earned less than $24,800 as a married couple; $18,650 as a Head of Household, or $12,400 as a single filer, you can use the IRS Non-filer Sign-up Tool to get the Child Tax Credit and receive missing stimulus payments.
