Middle School Transitions to all-remote instruction through March 26

Liberty Middle School is on all-remote instruction, beginning Monday, March 22, through Friday, March 26.

In person instruction will resume for middle school students Tuesday, April 6, when students return to school after Spring Break (Spring Break is March 29 – April 5).

The district learned that a LMS staff member has tested positive for COVID-19, and the decision to transition to remote instruction comes as the result of the required quarantine of many staff members and an inability to adequately staff the building with substitutes. The school will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized while students are learning from home.

Our thoughts are with the individual who tested positive and we wish them a speedy recovery. Privacy laws restrict the disclosure of personally identifiable information of anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Staff members and parents and guardians of students who may be at risk for exposure to COVID-19 have been individually notified by the school nurse or building administrator. Contact tracers from Sullivan County Public Health Services also reach out to people at risk for contracting the coronavirus and advise them of what steps to take.

For more information about our health and safety procedures please reach out to your building principal. Questions about COVID-19 should be directed to your healthcare provider or Sullivan County Public Health Services at 845-292-5910.
