Because student safety is our highest priority, the district would
like to take this opportunity to remind parents and students about
the serious consequences of bringing any weapons or objects
resembling weapons onto school grounds.
Please be assured that we do not tolerate the possession of any
type of weapon on our campus, in accordance with Liberty Board of
Education Policy #5300.30.
When a student violates the policy, we follow strict procedures in
order to ensure the ongoing safety of students, staff members and
visitors to our campus. A student found to be in possession of a
weapon or dangerous instrument is immediately reported to law
enforcement, suspended from school and referred to a hearing with
the superintendent of schools. This process can result in
additional penalties imposed by the superintendent or the courts.
If you have any questions about Liberty safety procedures and
protocols, please contact the main office of your child’s school.
