    Additional Pandemic-EBT food relief coming this summer

    New York State is again providing Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) food benefits to all households with children who are eligible to receive free school lunch under the National School Lunch Act and whose school was closed or operating with reduced in-school attendance during the 2020-2021 school year.

    Distribution of the benefit began in June and will continue for several months.

    Most eligible public-school students can expect to receive their first benefit beginning in late-July. If your child is eligible and has still not received P-EBT benefit by October 2021, please fill out the P-EBT Information Form.

    Here’s some more information about the benefit:

    • If you have misplaced a P-EBT Food Benefit card issued to your child, you may order a replacement card by calling 1-888-328-6399.
    • Once you have set up a PIN, you can check benefits balance by visiting www.connectebt.com or calling 1-888-328-6399.
    • For more information visit NYSOTDA P-EBT Benefits Information Page.

    The Liberty Central School District is not affiliated with this program. All questions should be directed to the NYSOTDA P-EBT Benefits Information Page or by calling 1-888-328-6399.

    From Dr. Patrick Sullivan | I am honored to be Liberty’s new superintendent

    Dear Liberty,

    I am honored and excited to serve as the Liberty Central School District’s new superintendent.  Since joining Liberty five years ago,  it has been clear to me that our Board of Education, administration, staff, students, families, and the entire Liberty community are dedicated to providing the highest quality education and best learning experience for our students.

    Prior to joining Liberty, I was an assistant principal and teacher with Sullivan County BOCES. I joined Liberty’s administrative team in 2016 as assistant director of student services and in 2018 became Liberty Middle School’s assistant principal. In July 2019, I was appointed assistant superintendent.

    In each role I have had the privilege of getting to know many of you, and I look forward to strengthening the District’s relationships, building new ones, and working together. Later this summer, as we prepare for the start of the 2021-2022 school year, I will be asking for your input. I’m conducting two virtual and in-person forums – to be scheduled soon – and I hope you will join me. The ultimate goals of the forums are:

    • Help the Liberty Central School District prepare for the 2021-2022 school year.
    • Help me gather information to support our students’ learning opportunities for the next several years. 

    I am alway happy to hear from you. Please don’t hesitate to email me at PSullivan@LibertyK12.org or call 845-292-6990.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Patrick Sullivan
    Superintendent of Schools
