Keeping you informed | Where to get up-to-date information about the new school year

The 2020-21 school year will be unlike any other, and the district is committed to making sure parents, staff, students and community members are kept informed every step of the way.

This website and official LCSD announcements via our district-wide messaging system and letters home are the most reliable sources of information. We’ll also host a series of community forums and surveys to gather your input, and will answer questions as best we can as circumstances continue to change.


This website’s “Reopening and 2020-2021 School Year” the district’s reopening plan, surveys, tutorial videos, and updates from the New York State Department of Education, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Department of Health.


We want to hear from you. If you have questions or would like to share your thoughts about reopening and the 2020-21 school year, email

Mass Notification System

The district uses the SchoolMessenger System to send phone calls, emails, and text messages to Liberty parents, guardians and employees. SchoolMessenger uses the contact information on file with SchoolTool to send those notifications.

It’s important to make sure you notify the main office of your child’s school with any updates and preferences on the alerts you receive. If you’ve forgotten your SchoolTool password contact
