Free student meals available during summer break

To ensure no child is left hungry over the summer, the Liberty Central School District will  provide a free and nutritious breakfast and lunch to kids and teens 18 and throughout the summer break.

Meals are available for pick up 9-11 a.m. each weekday morning at Liberty High School. Look for the pick-up table near the loading doors and the parking lot basketball court. (Meals will not be available July 3 as a result of the Independence Day holiday, but extra food will be sent home on July 2.)

Meals will also be delivered by Rolling V bus drivers along their regular routes.

This is the seventh consecutive year that Liberty CSD has offered the program. Meals will be provided to all children without charge, there  are no income requirements, and children and teens do not have to be enrolled in Liberty Schools to receive the meals.

LHS announces Junior Academic Awards and Scholarships

Each year Liberty High School presents academic awards and special scholarships for deserving Juniors.

Unfortunately, this year the awards could not be presented in person but a Google Slides presentation was created to honor all of these hard-working students.

Even though the awards could not be made in person to these students, they still deserve all the recognition and credit for their achievements. You can read the list of the awards and the recipients below.

 You may also see the awards by viewing the Junior Awards and Scholarships.

LFA announces Hutchinson and Heffley Scholarships

Each year the Liberty Faculty Association awards scholarships in the names of George Hutchinson and Lowell Heffley. Monies collect from various faculty fundraisers help to make these scholarships available to deserving Liberty Seniors who apply.

The video explains the history of the two scholarships and announces the winners. Please watch the video to celebrate the class of 2020!

LHS Athletic Block L Awards announced

Each year Liberty High School presents athletic awards for all three season during the Athletic Block L Awards presentation. This celebration also includes special wards given to underclassman and to Seniors.

Unfortunately, this year the awards could not be presented in person but the Liberty coaching staff created videos for the wards for each team. These videos were knitted together into one presentation. Since the spring season was cancelled the coaches were also asked to make a few brief comments for the “season that wasn’t”.

Even though the awards could not be made in person to the athletes, these young men and women still deserve all the recognition and credit for their achievements. Honor them by watching the video!

Check out the 2020 Senior Spotlights videos!

How the 2019-2020 school year will end is still in doubt. The entire LCSD has been disrupted by the COVID-19 virus. This is not the way any of us planned to end the year especially the 118 graduating Seniors. To honor these Seniors and to let them have their say, Senior class advisor, Liz Fuentes, has embarked on a mission to interview all 118 Seniors. Click on Senior Spotlights to see these videos.
