Heavy construction on Main Street on May 7

There will be heavy construction and paving on North Main Street on Monday, May 7. As a result,  traffic coming in to and out of the elementary school will be detoured to the back entrance.  The information below will help you plan ahead.

Parents and guardians of Liberty Elementary School students: Please take note of the following information. A letter will be sent home on Friday, May 4. A robo-call reminder will also be sent home to parents and guardians who subscribe to the district’s automated messaging service.

Parents and guardians of Liberty Middle/High School and students attending Liberty Middle/High School: Please be prepared for traffic on North Main Street. School administrators and teachers understand that traffic may cause delays.

What elementary parents and guardians need to know before May 7:


Main Street will be closed.  There will be no entrance into the school parking lot from North Main Street. Parents who are driving into the school should enter through the back drive.

The main entrance of Liberty Elementary School will open on Monday, May 7 only from 7– 7:30 a.m. for walkers and drop-off students.  Supervision will be available for drop-off students from 7– 7:30 a.m. so that parents who need to get to work can plan an early drop-off and avoid the construction delays that will happen beginning at 7:30 a.m. due to closing of the LES campus entrances and exits.

Please note:  On this day you cannot drop your student off at school between 7:30 a.m. – 8 a.m.

Kiss and Drop, normally located in the parking lot next to the public library, WILL NOT be open.  Parents who normally use this area will need to plan ahead.

Bus arrival will be handled by the school and transportation department.  The schedule will not be affected for students.

Dismissal for bussers will be handled by the school and students will arrive home at the same time.

Dismissal for walkers will remain the same.  They will be dismissed from the school at 2:40 p.m. as usual.

Dismissal for pick-up students – parents have two options:

1.     Pick your child up at 1:45 p.m. without any penalty for early release (please send a note with your child).  Parents who do this will avoid the buses and can drive in and out through the back drive of the school.

2.     Pick your child up at 2:40 p.m.  Please Note: the campus will be closed to all traffic between 2:00 p.m. – 2:40 p.m.  You cannot come to the school and wait for your child to dismiss on this date.  Parking will not be permitted on LES campus until 2:40 p.m.
