The Liberty Middle School will remain on remote learning through Friday, Dec. 18 as a result of the continued requirement of as many as 10 staff members to remain in quarantine.
The middle school has been closed for in-person instruction since Monday, Dec. 7, when a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.
The middle school will reopen for students on Monday, Dec. 21, and this week the school was sanitized and deep cleaned.
The district had hoped our middle school students could return to in-person learning tomorrow, but the quarantine requirements as per Department of Health protocols and the inability to adequately staff the building for the supervision and instruction of students forced the extension of the building’s closure.
Teachers and staff who are not quarantined will continue to report to the Middle School and will deliver remote instruction from their classrooms.
Privacy laws restrict us from identifying anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus. The health and safety of our students and staff is always our first priority, and we will continue to keep you informed.
The Liberty Central School District is the only official source of district news, and notifications about COVID-19 are posted on the district website and sent directly to Liberty staff and families via the district’s mass messaging system.
The district will continue to work closely with Sullivan County Public Health Services and will follow its guidance. Please contact your building administrators if you would like more information about our health and safety procedures. Questions about COVID-19 should be directed to your family physician or to Sullivan County Public Health Services at 845-292-5910.
